    Is Nvidia Stock Finally Ready for a Turnaround?

    Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) rose, then fell in after-market trading because its results beat low expectations while its outlook remained muted.Source: Shutterstock Non-GAAP net income came to $543 million, 88 cents per share fully diluted, on revenue of $2.22 billion. This just hit the earnings whisper and beat official estimates by 7 cents. Earnings were up 10% from the previous quarter with revenue up marginally.The consensus among analysts was that a bottom has been reached but that a build from here to last year's $3.2 billion in revenue is going to be slow. There are also fears about China, whose market fell overnight, which cost the stock its post-earnings gains.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips What's Next?What analysts should be focusing on are the new markets for Nvidia's graphics engine and its use in artificial intelligence, both in clouds and at the network edge. That's what CEO Jensen Huang wanted to talk about on the company's conference call. Huang was rhapsodic about the outlook for PC gaming, calling the console era over, and said software companies are increasingly turning to Nvidia's RTX ray tracing technology as a standard for graphics. He made no mention of Bitcoin mining, which once helped drive results but now looks to have been a fad. Instead, he said there are 300 million gamers in China. * 10 Baby Boomer Stocks to Buy Huang said breakthroughs in conversational technology at Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) will soon make cloud-based speech systems much more useful. "All of the major pieces of a conversational AI are now put together," he said, which will drive sales not just in clouds, but in new edge servers, designed to make all a cloud's data useful to people without a keyboard.CFO Colette Kress said the company is preparing for a time when data centers will be architected as single compute engines, with networking pre-installed, which is why Nvidia is buying Mellanox (NASDAQ:MLNX) for $6.9 billion in cash. These designs can become "edge servers" that bring workers a voice interface to the cloud-sized data stores generated by replacing controllers with sensors and chips in machines. How Fast?The speed with which this evolution takes place is the question analysts emphasized in declining to pound the table for Nvidia stock at its current price, which is about 8.3 times last year's revenue and 30 times the company's 2019 earnings.Shares peaked at over $280 each last summer, then plunged to $130 in December before bouncing back to $190 in April and falling, since, to the May 17 price of about $160. From a technical perspective, there may well be follow-through to the downside, perhaps even a re-testing of last year's lows.Analysts have soured slightly on the stock, with two coming off their buy recommendations and one coming off hold in the last month. But the average rating remains overweight. A Long-Term BuyFor investors with a five-year time horizon, however, and a clear understanding of technology's future, the current price makes an attractive entry point.Replacing dials with chips, connected to sensors measuring what's in a machine's working environment, creates a tsunami of data which, when analyzed by software, allows for operator-free control of factories, stores, homes and cities. Only exceptional conditions need to be trifled with, through voice interfaces connected wirelessly to edge servers and the cloud.This was the original vision of the Internet of Things, what I called the "World of Always On" in 2004 when I spoke of it at Stanford. As usual, I was very early to the party. But the party is now ready to get started, in the view of Nvidia's management.Take their word for it.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

This is Minecraft Earth , a free-to-play version of one of the most popular games ever made, rebuilt around augmented reality for the iPhone and Android. Similar to Pokémon Go , which popularized AR gaming in a massive way, it relies on your smartphone as a window into a virtual world. But unlike that game, Minecraft Earth is completely committed to the notion of augmented reality. You're not just running into a random Pikachu on the sidewalk, you're building elaborate Minecraft creations that everyone else can see. The title says it all: It's a planet-wide Minecraft takeover.

    3 Reasons Not To Chase The Parabolic Okta Stock Price … For Now

    Undeniably, one of the top growth names in the broad technology sector is Okta (NASDAQ:OKTA). A specialist in the burgeoning identity control and management segment, OKTA stock is fundamentally relevant. And it's technically relevant too, jumping to a nearly 67% year-to-date lead.Moreover, shares have really had only one trajectory since its April 2017 initial public offering. After its first session, the OKTA stock price closed up at $23.51. Since then, early stakeholders in the tech firm have profited an astonishing 349%.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsNow, we're at the point when OKTA stock has hit overbought levels as based on the relative strength indicator (RSI). I never recommend making a big move on any one indicator. However, it's worth noting that the last two times OKTA triggered the RSI, shares turned volatile.Adding to the reservations, Zacks Investment Research recently downgraded the shares. Although most analysts remain bullish on the OKTA stock price, a significant percentage are fence-sitters. Considering that shares have flown past the average-price target of $88.53 -- closing just shy of $110 yesterday -- not much room seemingly exists for additional upside. * 7 Cloud Stocks to Buy on Overcast Days Currently, it's a battle between technical concerns and the fundamental potential for the company. If you're thinking seriously about buying OKTA stock, though, I suggest a much-clearer route: wait. Shares will probably correct, and here are three reasons why. OKTA Stock is OvervaluedLet's just cut straight to the chase: the OKTA stock price today is simply overvalued. I'm in the same camp as fellow InvestorPlace contributor Bret Kenwell. He recognizes the company as a growth monster, but he's also rational. Kenwell writes:Generally speaking, I don't like to chase stocks. Okta may be a great company but that doesn't mean I want to pile into the name after we've seen a near-24% rally in the S&P 500 index and a near-30% rally for the PowerShares QQQ ETF (NASDAQ:QQQ) since Christmas.But it's not just about market concerns, although those are obviously important. Instead, I'm also looking at the grand scheme of things. The OKTA stock price is also overvalued relative to the identity-management industry.In 2017, the global identity and access management (IAM) market had a value of $8.85 billion. Experts in the field predict a low-double digit CAGR up to 2025. Other sector analysts are more optimistic, targeting a CAGR of 16%. That would mean by 2022, the IAM industry could have a value of approximately $24 billion.That's all great news. But OKTA sports a market capitalization of slightly over $12 billion, substantially exceeding IAM's present international market value. Further, 2018 revenue totaled just under $400 million, while net-income losses have consistently widened.In my view, this is a clear sign that the OKTA stock price has gotten well ahead of itself. OKTA Faces Serious CompetitionAlthough Okta's shares have experienced a mercurial rise to the top, it's also not surprising. IAM is an incredibly relevant industry, and it's so much more than its rather sober title suggests.Sure, IAM protocols enhance a corporation's security measures. In light of massive scandals like the Equifax (NYSE:EFX) breach, businesses are finally taking digital protections seriously. However, think about the mundane stuff, such as memorizing passwords. With Okta's solutions, you can enjoy a one-stop shop for your data-organizational needs.Again, it's no surprise that shares have skyrocketed. But because IAM is so lucrative, it attracts competition. We're not talking about bit players, either, but something that reads like the who's who of tech: Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) and IBM (NYSE:IBM), to name but a few.At any moment, these giants could squash Okta. Plus, a buyout that would launch the OKTA stock price isn't guaranteed. After all, Amazon already has viable cloud solutions. It won't take much for them to enter IAM and disrupt it. Which leads me to… IAM Is Ripe for DisruptionSpeaking of disruption, Okta faces somewhat of a double-edged sword. On one hand, they're enjoying tremendous momentum getting their product quickly to the ground floor. But on the other hand, IAM doesn't have a very high barrier to entry.One of the obvious technologies that can benefit this industry is the blockchain. In a nutshell, the blockchain represents both a decentralized and immutable platform. It's perfect for controlling information access and to establish a perfect "paper" record of activity.But the problem for Okta as a publicly traded entity is that the blockchain is open source. Essentially, this groundbreaking technology is free. All someone needs is a good idea and some modest operational funds to potentially disrupt IAM.Okta is playing that disruptive role right now, which suits OKTA stock holders just fine. However, at this current price point, the company is too much of a risk. If you like the concept, my suggestion again is to wait. I'm almost certain we'll see a better price shortly.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
