On Wednesday, UBS reiterated its Buy rating on NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) with a consistent price target of $1,150.00. UBS forecasts that NVIDIA could report first-quarter revenue up to $26 billion, with the data center segment contributing approximately $22-23 billion. The firm also anticipates NVIDIA may guide towards total revenue of about $27-28 billion for the following quarter, with data center sales estimated around $25-26 billion.

The analyst from UBS addressed investor concerns regarding a potential "air pocket" in revenue during the October/January period due to the initial shipment timing of NVIDIA's Blackwell product in mid-December. UBS believes these concerns are exaggerated, citing recent customer discussions and supply chain analysis that indicate sustained demand for NVIDIA's Hopper products through the end of the year.

UBS also predicts robust demand for NVIDIA's forthcoming GB200 systems, having significantly increased its revenue and earnings per share (EPS) estimates for fiscal year 2026/calendar year 2025 to approximately $175 billion and $41, respectively. These projections are based on a strong mix of GB200 systems sales expected next year. According to UBS, while sell-side estimates for calendar year 2025 appear conservative, most investors' EPS expectations are in the high-$30s, still below UBS's revised figures.

The firm suggests that, given the strong demand outlook, there could be another considerable rise in NVIDIA's aggregate purchase commitments, following a relatively unchanged figure in the previous quarter. UBS's stance on NVIDIA remains bullish, with the price target of $1,150 reaffirmed, reflecting confidence in the company's revenue growth and market position.
