We currently have a Trefis price estimate of around $13 for Nvidia's stock, about 43% above the current market price of around $9.

Trefis members have created forecasts for two key drivers of Nvidia's stock over the last week: (1) discrete notebook GPU market share and (2) global notebook units. The members' forecasts suggest that discrete notebook GPU Market Share will trend slightly above the Trefis estimate, while global notebook units will be roughly in line. These projections indicate a combined upside of around 1% for Nvidia's stock.

We estimate that discrete notebook GPUs account for around 7% of the $13 Trefis price estimate for Nvidia's stock. Below are charts showing recent estimates created by Trefis members for these two drivers.

The average of forecasts for discrete notebook GPU market share created by Trefis members indicated a projected increase from around 73% in 2010 to around 76% by the end of the Trefis forecast period, compared to the baseline Trefis estimate of an increase from around 68% in 2010 to around 71% by the end of the Trefis forecast period.

The member estimates imply an upside of 1% to the Trefis price estimate for Nvidia's stock. In the past, the discrete notebook GPU market share has increased from around 35% in 2005 to around 67% in 2009.
