On Thursday, Argus increased its price target for NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA ) shares to $1,100 from the previous $950, while maintaining a Buy rating on the stock.

The revision follows NVIDIA's fiscal first quarter 2025 performance, which significantly surpassed Wall Street's aggressive consensus estimates. NVIDIA's revenue for the quarter exceeded expectations by approximately $1.35 billion.

The company's financial results showed a remarkable increase, with revenue and non-GAAP EPS rising by triple-digit percentages. This growth is largely attributed to NVIDIA's expanding presence in the artificial intelligence (AI) sector. The fiscal first quarter of 2025 data center revenue stood at $22.6 billion, a surge of over 400% compared to the $4.3 billion reported in the same period the previous year.

Management at NVIDIA has guided for the fiscal second quarter of 2025, projecting a midpoint revenue of $28 billion. This figure is around $1 billion higher than the pre-reporting consensus estimate. The upward trajectory of NVIDIA's business is bolstered by the company's recent showcase at the GTC 2024 event, where it unveiled several new and updated products, further solidifying its position within the AI ecosystem.

In anticipation of continued growth in fiscal year 2025, NVIDIA is also preparing for a 10-for-1 stock split scheduled for June.

The company is expected to extend its growth beyond the data center and AI markets, with advancements in its other end markets including gaming, professional visualization, and automotive, which are all forecasted to accelerate.
