Did NVIDIA's Ultra-Conservative Guidance Set Up Huge Beat? BMO Discusses|NASDAQ: NVDA

Commenting on NVIDIA Corporation's NVDA 27.21% third-quarter results, BMO Capital Markets said its fiscal third-quarter earnings and revenues were all well above the guidance.

Analyst Ambrish Srivastava noted that the growth came from data centers, gaming and autos.

  • Data center revenues accounting for 12 percent of the total revenues rose 193 percent year-over-year.
  • Gaming accounting for 62 percent of the total revenues rose 63 percent year-over-year to $1.24 billion, thanks to ramp of Pascal-based products.

Guidance And Analyst Expectations

Reflecting the higher revenues and higher operating expenditure, BMO Capital raised its 2017 and 2018 estimates materially, with fiscal year 2017 and 2018 pro forma earnings per share estimate at $2.60 and $3.10, respectively, up from $1.99 and $2.05.

BMO Capital Markets said it continues to rate NVIDIA a Market Perform but raised its price target to $75 from $59.

At the time of writing, NVIDIA was up 25.76 percent to $85.23 on roughly 3.5 times its average volume.
