Nvidia Stock Surged (Again) Today. Is It too Late to Buy the Red-Hot Artificial Intelligence (AI) Growth Stock?

Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) jumped again on Tuesday, adding to its ongoing winning streak this year. The stock gained ground as the trading day wore on and by the time the market closed, the stock was up 7.2%.

Since the vast majority of AI computing is done in the cloud and data centers, this benefits Nvidia. Second, the company is also the go-to for processors used in machine learning — an earlier branch of AI — controlling a 95% share of that market as well. This gives Nvidia an entrenched position, a clear advantage over would-be challengers.

As a result, Nvidia has delivered three consecutive quarters of record-setting growth, highlighted by triple-digit, year-over-year revenue and profit growth, with another triple-digit quarter on tap.

This leads to the quintessential investing question: Is Nvidia stock a buy. After the company’s recent blockbuster earnings, Nvidia’s valuation dropped significantly, currently trading for 36 times forward earnings. While that’s a premium compared to a price-to-earnings…
