Amidst the backdrop of Nvidia Corp’s recent GTC conference on March 19, technology analysts were treated to a cornucopia of product innovations and collaborations.

Revealed at the gathering was Nvidia’s latest GPU architecture, Blackwell, positioned as the successor to the Hopper architecture.

Looking ahead, Nvidia anticipates the Generative AI (GenAI) market to surpass $100 trillion, with a verdant landscape paving the way for approximately $250 billion in annual revenue growth and an additional $250 billion in annual demand.

Mizuho’s analyst, Vijay Rakesh, remains steadfast in his Buy recommendation for Nvidia, setting a price target of $1,000.

Rakesh shed light on the pricing strategy for Nvidia’s B100, gauging it at $30-40K, a minor escalation of just 25-30% over the current H100 priced around $25K, while offering a 3-5x performance enhancement – a formidable challenge for industry rival, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc (AMD).

Anticipating robust growth, Rakesh posits that Nvidia’s emphasis on superior hardware quality and software integration will facilitate its continued domination in the AI realm, potentially culminating in industry revenues exceeding $400 billion by 2027.

Projections from Rakesh hint at first-quarter revenue and EPS estimates of $24.01 billion and $5.52, respectively.

BofA’s analyst, Vivek Arya, reiterates a Buy rating for Nvidia with a price target of $1,100, emphasizing the company’s focus on broadening Total Addressable Market (TAM) and enhancing margin prospects, while fortifying its competitive AI stronghold.

Arya singles out the accelerated computing TAM, estimated at $250 billion annually, as a pivotal domain indicating the migration from traditional data centers to accelerated data centers, offering a more efficient alternative to outdated CPUs.

Although Blackwell GPU prices are set to range from $30-40k (compared to Hopper’s $20-30k), possibly falling short of initial expectations, Arya underscores that Nvidia’s focus on an enriched product mix is expected to maintain gross margins at mid-70% levels, driven by the sale of high-end chip+NVLink+switch+system configurations.

A noteworthy observation highlights Nvidia’s strategic positioning in various markets, which collectively offer a TAM exceeding $100 billion by late 2025 and an expansive future opportunity pool valued at $1 trillion.

Rallying behind the transformative shift from conventional processing to accelerated computing, the company is poised to unlock substantial revenue and profitability growth potential in the ensuing years.

Goldman Sachs analyst Toshiya Hari upholds a Buy rating for Nvidia, elevating the price target from $875 to $1,000, lauding the competitive pricing strategy for the Blackwell platform that is poised to exert pressure on competitors like AMD.

Hari commends Nvidia’s long-term orientation by prioritizing market share gains over near-term profit margins, setting a strategic course for sustained growth and innovation.

Benchmark’s analyst, Cody Acree, echoes a Buy recommendation for Nvidia with a $1,000 price target, expressing exuberance after witnessing the company’s ascendancy in shaping the Generative AI landscape through a comprehensive suite of offerings encompassing hardware, software, networking, chip design, and manufacturing capabilities.

Ebullient about Nvidia’s trajectory, Acree underscores its pivotal role in ushering in the adoption of Generative, Inferencing, and Large Language Training Models across diverse industry sectors, cloud computing, and enterprise landscapes.

Acree’s forecasts anticipate first-quarter revenue and EPS of $24.50 billion and $5.55, respectively.

Piper Sandler’s analyst, Harsh Kumar, maintains an Overweight rating for Nvidia, elevating the price target from $850 to $1,050, heralding the Blackwell architecture as a testament to Nvidia’s stalwart position in the hardware domain.

Kumar emphasizes Nvidia’s supremacy in delivering a seamless hardware-software stack tailored to navigate the prolonged transition towards accelerated computing and generative AI, akin to unleashing a torrent of opportunities for exponential growth.

Kumar envisions first-quarter revenue and EPS figures of $24.01 billion and $5.41, respectively.

Price Action: NVDA shares witnessed a marginal decline of 0.95% to trade at $885.33 in the latest market update on Wednesday.
