Conclusion

Neutral in the short term and Bullish in the long term

In short term, Nvidia has several headwinds under the current macro environment (i.e. slowing Gaming and Crypto markets, Geopolitical and FX risks). However, in the long term, Nvidia is well positioned for the data center and AI computing trends.

Possible better stocks could be:

  1. Tesla (TSLA), because current Tesla’s business grows at an 80%+ rate without seeing any significant headwinds. It is also able to manufacture its own chip and well positioned for AI technology.
