NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA), the renowned tech company, has emerged as a major winner in the stock market this year, with an awe-inspiring performance fueled by the relentless growth of artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
In light of the ongoing AI frenzy, Stifel analysts led by Ruben Roy hiked the price target for Nvidia’s stock from $225 to $300 on Monday, May 22. The experts believe the chipmaker could be the largest beneficiary of the AI boom going forward.
“NVDA remains the best-positioned component/ systems company to benefit from the AI investment cycle in the medium term, in our view.”– said Ruben Roy, an analyst at Stifel.
The broker also reiterated the ‘hold’ rating on NVDA. Moreover, Stifel also raised its outlook for Nvidia’s financial results, estimating the company’s revenue to grow to $37.8 billion for the full year 2025 and earnings per share (EPS) to rise to $6.18.

Stifel’s new price objective is 3.7% lower than NVDA’s Monday closing price of $311.76. At the time of writing, the company’s shares fell by 0.4% in premarket trading to $310.51.
