Nvidia is the only near-term ‘beat and raise’ chip maker when it comes to AI, analyst says

Nvidia Corp. can be the only chip maker positioned to exceed Wall Street expectations in the close to time period when it comes to servicing the wildly rising artificial-intelligence market, in accordance to one analyst.

On Friday, Morgan Stanley chip analyst Joseph Moore switched his “top pick” inventory to Nvidia
NVDA,
+0.09%

from Advanced Micro Devices Inc.
AMD,
-3.35%

on the foundation that Nvidia was higher positioned to generate income in the close to time period.

While Moore maintained his obese score on AMD, he stated “only one company is in a position to beat and raise this year,” and that was Nvidia.

“Unlike Nvidia, though, the company is unlikely to post near term upside,” Moore stated of AMD. This previous week, AMD launched a slew of AI {hardware} merchandise, related to Nvidia’s late March launch.

Shares of Nvidia rose 0.1% to end Friday at $426.92, for a weekly achieve of 10.1%, whereas AMD shares fell 3.4% to shut at $120.08, for a weekly lack of 3.9% throughout AMD’s AI data-center product launch throughout the week.

“Frankly, the commentary around these markets is more positive than anything we have heard in 29 years of covering semiconductor stocks,” Moore stated of AI. “Even at a level of $40 billion in data center revenue next year, we see the potential for the data center business to grow to over $56 billion by [fiscal year 2028/calendar year 2027].”

“The factor driving numbers higher faster seems to be the number of customers,” Moore stated of Nvidia. “Our initial analysis had contemplated 20 or so full scale large language models, which means that revenue growth would come from increasing model complexity, extensions of those models for vertical markets, language translations, and real time retraining, which we thought would drive training to $32 billion by [calendar year 2027].”
