RECENT NEWS AND ANALYSIS

Potential upside & downside to trefis price

nVIDIA Company

VALUATION HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Tegra Processors constitute 92% of the Trefis price estimate for nVIDIA's stock.

WHAT HAS CHANGED?

Q4 FY'24 Earnings

Nvidia posted a strong set of Q4 FY'24 results amid a surge in demand for graphics processing units for artificial intelligence applications. While revenue grew by 265% to $22.1 billion, net income surged to $12.3 billion, up from $1.4 in the year-ago period.

Note: Nvidia's FY'24 ended on January 28, 2024

POTENTIAL UPSIDE & DOWNSIDE TO TREFIS PRICE

Below are key drivers of Nvidia's value that present opportunities for upside or downside to the current Trefis price estimate for Nvidia:

Compute & Networking

  • We currently forecast Nvidia's Compute & Networking to increase from $15 billion in FY 2023 to $49 billion by the end of the Trefis forecast period. However, if sales grow to over $60 billion by the end of our review period, driven by stronger demand from data center, automotive, and embedded customers, we could see a 10% upside to our price estimate.

Graphics

  • Graphics Revenue: We currently forecast Nvidia's Graphics Revenue to increase rapidly to almost $34 billion by the end of the forecast period. However, the company's GPUs have a clear edge over other chips in enabling parallel computing. There is a chance that our estimates may turn out to be conservative. In a scenario where Nvidia's GPU revenue increases to $45 billion by the end of our forecast period, our price estimate can see an upside of over 15%.

BUSINESS SUMMARY

While Nvidia is best known for its graphics processing units, which are essentially high-performance processor that generates realistic graphics for gaming on computers, the company expanded to several other large and important computationally intensive areas. Nvidia's GPUs are now much sought after for workloads including artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, as well as cryptocurrency mining. The company is a fabless semiconductor vendor, as it outsources its fabrication to specialized foundries. The company's products are now used in gaming, professional visualization, data center, and automotive markets.

SOURCES OF VALUE

We believe that the Compute & Networking segment is the biggest driver of Nvidia's value. The division grew by about 36% in FY'23, emerging Nvdia's biggest business segment. Moreover, we believe the segment has stronger long-term growth potential as well, given that demand is levered to important trends in the computing industry, including the deployment of artificial intelligence capabilities by cloud vendors, the development of autonomous driving technology, and cryptocurrency mining.

KEY TRENDS

Nintendo Sales Aiding Tegra Processors Segment Growth

Nvidia's solid growth for its Tegra Processors segment in recent quarters can partly be attributed to growth in its SOC modules for consoles, such as Nintendo Switch. Note that Nintendo Switch has been a very successful console, and more than 40 million units have been sold since its launch in 2018. The console uses Nvidia's SOC modules, and further growth in the demand for consoles will bode well for Nvidia.

Increasing Adoption of Deep Learning Across Multiple Industries to Drive Nvidia's Data Center Growth

GPU-accelerated data centers are expanding in both High-Performance Computing (HPC) and the cloud, driven by the growth of deep learning and Big Data. GPUs have become the accelerator of choice for hyper-scale data centers due to their superior programmability, competitive performance, and power efficiency. The launch of VR can lead to potential growth in the enterprise segment across multiple industries. Nvidia powers IBM's lesson and Facebook's big source server from Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is present in AI platforms at hyper-scale giants such as Microsoft, Amazon, Alibaba, and Baidu for training as well as real-time influence. Nvidia is engaged with nearly 3,500 companies and organizations in developing deep learning technology.

Expansion in Gaming

Growth in gaming is expected to be fueled by the continued anticipation of new blockbuster games, the rise of eSports, the emergence of new technologies like virtual reality (VR) and Direct X, and the expansion in developing countries. Nvidia's gaming platform has grown at a >30% rate for the last four years. Since Nvidia has still not fully penetrated the market, it believes there is ample scope for growth.

Expansion of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) & Self-Driving Car Technologies To Drive Growth in the Automotive Segment

The automotive segment is one of the fastest-growing sub-segments of Nvidia's Compute & Networking business and offers higher gross margins. The company has been working on building its automotive computing platform for over a decade and is in a strong position to leverage this growth. Over FY'23 Automotive and Embedded revenues rose by about 60% to a record $903 million.
