Nvidia Shares Rise : Nvidia (NVDA.O) shares rose over 3% on Tuesday due to heavy activity. Two brokerage companies boosted chip giants price targets. These positive adjustments raise expectations for Nvidia’s quarterly earnings announcement next week.
Nvidia, the most valued semiconductor company, has led a tech stock rise all year. People’s excitement about artificial intelligence and demand for its complicated pieces are driving this rise. Nvidia shares traded for over $22 billion at midday. This exceeded Tesla (TSLA.O), Wall Street’s highest-traded stock, at $14 billion.
Everyone agrees that they must do well. The benchmark is high, and buyers appear eager to test the limits even before the most critical earnings announcement. “They’ve got to blow it out of the water,” Triple D Trading veteran Dennis Dick said. Story’s over. Even in the report, buyers are raising the bar.
Nvidia’s shares initially rose 3.5%, then fell. Shares rose 1.7% to $445. Gains reached 9% this week. Nvidia was one of three Philadelphia semiconductor index (.SOX) stocks to rise on Tuesday. This stood out from the index. After strong U.S. retail sales, concerns about long-term high interest rates pushed the stock market off balance.
NVDA becomes a tech kingmaker,” and amazing things happen. New AI software and specialized cloud infrastructure models are attracting significant amounts of money and new funding sources. In a research report, UBS analyst Timothy Arcuri observed, “NVDA is literally playing the role of “kingmaker” as a huge wave of capital and new financing vehicles chase after new AI software and specialized cloud infrastructure models.”
Timothy Arcuri upped his price target from $475 to $540 ahead of Nvidia’s fiscal second-quarter report on August 23. Bullish move. Wells Fargo also improved by upping the price goal from $450 to $500. Nvidia’s rise to Morgan Stanley’s top stock prompted this shift.
Wells Fargo analyst Aaron Rakers stated, “We think it’s hard to bet against NVDA’s preeminent position as the main beneficiary of an AI-driven architectural transformation of the data center.” Nvidia is a powerhouse in AI-driven architecture evolution.
Nvidia’s stock surged 24% on May 25. The company’s second-quarter sales prediction was over 50% higher than Wall Street’s. Nvidia’s AI chips, which power advanced apps like ChatGPT, are in high demand, which led to this optimistic projection.
