TheStreet would like to highlight 3 stocks pushing the industry higher today:

3. NVIDIA ( NVDA) is one of the companies pushing the Electronics industry higher today. As of noon trading, NVIDIA is up $0.18 (0.9%) to $19.00 on average volume. Thus far, 3.1 million shares of NVIDIA exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 8.1 million shares. The stock has ranged in price between $18.71-$19.10 after having opened the day at $18.89 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $18.82.

NVIDIA Corporation operates as a visual computing company. The company operates through two segments, GPU and Tegra Processors. NVIDIA has a market cap of $10.3 billion and is part of the technology sector. Shares are up 15.4% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there are 9 analysts who rate NVIDIA a buy, 3 analysts rate it a sell, and 12 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates NVIDIA as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, reasonable valuation levels, increase in net income and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity. Get the full NVIDIA Ratings Report now.

TheStreet Ratings rates Broadcom as a hold. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and disappointing return on equity.
