NVIDIA Corporation NVDA 0.58% shares have recovered from the market-wide tech sell-off. The company has an immediate catalyst in the form of its Analyst Day, scheduled for Mon. April 12, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST.
The Nvidia Analyst: Credit Suisse analyst John Pitzer maintained an Outperform rating and $620 price target for Nvidia shares.
The Nvidia Thesis: The key near-term issues the company has to address are regarding Gaming over-earning, timeline for reaccelerating year-over-year growth in core Data Center Group and the regulatory process around the Arm Holdings acquisition, analyst Pitzer said in a note.
The event, the analyst said, is likely to underscore key long-term EPS drivers, which continue to increase.
The company will likely highlight growing proof-points of a $100 billion+ total addressable market for the DCG, including $45 billion for Cloud, $30 billion for Enterprise and $15 billion for Edge, Pitzer said. Nvidia could shed light on growing software monetization, with AI Application Frameworks, the analyst added.
The company is also likely to emphasize the still-robust Gaming market, with or without crypto, and the growing momentum in autonomous driving, the analyst said.
The opportunity, according to the analyst, clearly supports a long-term gross margin of 70%, an operating margin of 50% and a free cash flow margin of 30%. For the calendar year 2020, these metrics are expected at 66%, 41% and 24%, respectively, supporting the calendar year 2021 EPS of $13.35, roughly in line with the consensus, the analyst said.
NVDA Price Action: Nvidia shares were down 0.58% at $576 at market close Friday.

Nvidia stock closed up 5.62% on Monday after the company announced several new products and told investors that it expected its first-quarter income to surpass previous estimates.
Nvidia said revenue in its fiscal first quarter, which ends in May, is likely to be higher than $5.3 billion, which was its previous estimate for investors from February.
Analysts polled by Refinitiv previously expected that Nvidia would report $5.32 billion in sales in the quarter.

“While our fiscal 2022 first quarter is not yet complete, Q1 total revenue is tracking above the $5.30 billion outlook provided during our fiscal year-end earnings call,” said Colette Kress, Nvidia’s CFO, in a statement.
The signal about a strong quarter comes as demand for microchips, like the products that Nvidia sells, has been high around the world, leading to short supply and high aftermarket prices for desirable chips, such as Nvidia’s most recent line of graphics cards. Nvidia’s total revenue in its fiscal fourth quarter was up 61%.
Nvidia said that its chips could be hard to find through the end of the year, but that it would still ship enough chips to continue to report growing revenue.
“Overall demand remains very strong and continues to exceed supply while our channel inventories remain quite lean,” Kress said. “We expect demand to continue to exceed supply for much of this year.”
On Monday, Nvidia announced a new server chip called Grace, fresh systems for running artificial intelligence on servers, software for running chatbots and speech recognition, and new products for self-driving cars.
Nvidia also said that its line of chips for industrial cryptocurrency miners would report as much as $150 million in revenue in the fiscal first quarter, up from a previous estimate of $50 million.
