NVIDIA Corporation [NASDAQ:NVDA], a US$72 billion company, just ran up more than 17% in one day!
Who said you can’t make big returns on billion-dollar behemoths?
All time NVIDIA Share Price High
The stock hit an all-time high of $121.73 yesterday, after the company reported strong quarterly earnings, with diluted earnings per share of $0.79 along with a 48% hike in revenues to US$1.94 billion.
The revolutionary tech giant also announced a deal with carmaker Toyota Motor Corp [ASX:7203]. Both companies will collaborate to deliver artificial intelligence (AI) hardware and software technologies that will enhance driverless cars in the next few years.
While NVIDIA works with other companies on AI and autonomous vehicles, their deal with Toyota is significant, as they are one of the largest automakers in the world. Toyota will be using NVIDIA’s DRIVE PX computer chip for AI cars.
What this basically means is more future sales for NVIDIA. Because of this, analysts are hiking their target prices on NVIDIA significantly.
As reported by Market Watch:
‘On Wednesday, increases to Nvidia’s target price come from UBS, to $135 from $132, Stifel Nicolaus, to $93 from $90; J.P. Morgan, to $122 from $116; SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, to $124 form $116; Pacific Crest, to $99 from $90; and RBC Capital, to $138 from $130.’
You get the idea. NVIDIA has the potential to be even bigger.
But is it too late to get in now on NVIDIA stocks?
It might be wise to wait until the stock dips momentarily. As usual, when good news is announced, investors overreact, thinking the news is far better than it actually is.
But if you’re thinking about investing in your first tech stock, NVIDIA might be one of the best tech companies to invest in. They have cutting-edge technology. They’re going to be involved in multiple industry projects worth billions. And the company has contracts with major players in AI and the driverless-vehicle field.
Sounds like a good long-term investment to me.
