For quite some time, NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) was one of the most explosive stocks on the market. And then things fell apart in late 2018, as the stock dropped from $280 to a low of $124. However, it appears the stock may be turning itself around.
In fact, if NVDA can break above double top resistance at $192, we could see $250 a share.
Analysts at Bank of America agree, saying they are more bullish on NVDA, citing “unrivaled” data center growth prospects, as highlighted by MarketWatch. Bank of America also reiterated its buy rating on the NVDA stock and lifted its price target to $250 a share.
“[Nvidia’s] data center growth is on the cusp of benefiting from the next-big [artificial intelligence] landmark–the ability to accurately listen, understand, speak and contextualize human speech, referred to as natural language processing (NLP)/conversational AI,” they wrote.
While cloud spending is still weak, game sales are beginning to show signs of recovery.
Plus, second half data center sales could be “muted,” as also mentioned by MarketWatch. The analysts also see “Nvidia producing ‘the best organic growth’ among large-capitalization semiconductor companies heading into 2020, driven by new ray-tracing-based gaming cycle and first use of high-performance 7 nanometer manufacturing technology.”
NVDA is well worth paying attention to at current prices. The stock is a buy at current prices. We have a $250 price target.
