Shares of Nvidia (NVDA) were down more than 2% shortly after the open Thursday as investors reacted to a fresh research note from Morgan Stanley that raised questions about performance in the company's gaming division.
Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore wrote Thursday that "gaming data points remain mixed" for Nvidia Corp. amid the disappearance of the company's cryptocurrency business. "We wouldn't expect near term upside from gaming, but still like the stock," he said. Moore's note comes after tech reviewers weighed in on the company's new gaming products. "As review embargos broke for the new gaming products, performance improvements in older games is not the leap we had initially hoped for," Moore wrote. "Still, new features such as ray tracing and DLSS [deep learning super sampling] will matter more longer term." He rates the stock at overweight with a $273 price target. Shares are down 1.6% in premarket trading, though they're up 46% over the past 12 months. The S&P 500 has gained 16% in that time, as the PHLX Semiconductor Index has risen 19%.
