What’s Behind the Bull Stance on NVDA Stock?

Here’s what the Raymond James analysts had to say about Nvidia in a note to clients obtained by Seeking Alpha:

“We believe concerns regarding a potential pause in customer spending ahead of Blackwell ramps are unwarranted as Inferencing demand continues to outpace GPU supply […] We expect H200 to be a key near-term driver followed by B100 / B200 ramps in 2H24. Our recent conversations in Asia point to a significant mix shift in favor of GB200 NVL systems, which positions NVDA to capture additional share of [data center] capex.”

NVDA stock is up 1.9% as of Thursday morning.
