NVIDIA Corporation has a market cap of $8.0 billion and is part of the technology sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 10.9, below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates NVIDIA Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels, increase in net income and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. Get the full NVIDIA Corporation Ratings Report now.
