NVIDIA Corp. Stock Rating Upgraded by Evercore Partners (NVDA)
NVIDIA Corp. (NASDAQ:NVDA) was upgraded by equities research analysts at Evercore Partners from an “underweight” rating to an “equal weight” rating in a research note issued to investors on Tuesday, TheFlyOnTheWall.com reports. The firm currently has a $16.00 price target on the stock. Evercore Partners’ price objective would indicate a potential downside of 0.31% from the stock’s previous close.
The analysts wrote, “It seems more likely mgmt shutters its efforts in Tegra for smartphone,” the report noted. “While Tegra 4i is bound to capture some design wins (updates at MWC), it’s unlikely to achieve critical mass and thus drive the volumes needed to justify this investment. We estimate a 50% reduction of Tegra op-ex (total: $300mn/yr) with continued efforts for auto / industrial / gaming / tablets. If so, this adds ~15c to annual EPS.”
