Today’s pitch comes from community member Ravi Sundaram. Ravi leads technology and market strategy in the semiconductor industry, loves investing in tech stocks, and learning about crypto.
Long term investment in Nvidia (ticker: NVDA).
Nvidia is a developer of graphics processing units (GPUs). These are core powerhouse chips that drive today’s and future gaming, visualization softwares, data centers and automobiles. With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 85, Nvidia is seen as an exciting challenger to giants AMD and Intel.
If Nvidia gets a beat for the first quarter and continues to take market share from Intel and AMD, then there is a 8-10% upside potential for the shares in 12 months. If the ARM deal goes through then I am expecting a bigger upside in 12 months, perhaps closer to 12-15%.
The biggest risk is the ARM deal: if it falls through, it’ll create some downside. I think in the long term this is still a solid buy and in many cases a sleeping giant waiting to be a market leader in some fast-growing segments. To mitigate this I would buy some AMD as well as they will continue to take market share from Intel, where I have not yet seen any strong turnaround activity but the new CEO is still settling in so need to keep an eye here.
