Top Research Reports for NVIDIA, Accenture and Goldman Sachs

These research reports have been hand-picked from the roughly 70 reports published by our analyst team today.

You can see all of today's research reports here >>>

NVIDIA shares have lagged lately, but they are otherwise standout performers over the past year (+96.9% vs. +60.3% for the industry) as the company capitalized on coronavirus-induced work-from-home and learn-at-home trends.

It is also benefiting from strong growth in GeForce desktop and notebook GPUs, which is boosting gaming revenues. Moreover, a surge in Hyperscale demand remains a tailwind for the company's Data Center business. Expansion of NVIDIA GeForce NOW is expected to drive the user base.

Further, solid uptake of artificial intelligence-based smart cockpit infotainment solutions is a boon. Additionally, collaboration with Daimler-owned Mercedes-Benz is expected to further strengthen NVIDIA's presence in the autonomous vehicles and other automotive electronics space.

Accenture shares have gained +22.3% over the last six months against the Zacks Consulting industry's gain of +24.7%. The Zacks analyst believes that the company has been steadily gaining traction in its outsourcing and consulting businesses.

It has been strategically enhancing its cloud and digital marketing suite through acquisitions and partnerships. However, pricing pressure due to significant competition from strong companies like Genpact, Cognizant and Infosys, remains a concern.

Global presence exposes it to foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Buyout-related integration risks continue to remain a concern.

Shares of Goldman Sachs have gained +27.7% in the past three months against the Zacks Financial - Investment Bank industry's gain of +23.6%, with a combination of robust capital markets and investment banking opportunities helping improve the Wall Street firm's fortunes.

Efforts to expand its consumer lending business have also been supporting the company's growth. Prudent cost-management initiatives might continue supporting bottom-line growth. Moreover, with a strong liquidity position, Goldman remains less exposed to credit risk in case of any economic downturn.

However, legal issues, high dependence on overseas revenues, and volatile client-activity might impede top-line growth. Moreover, steady capital deployment activities remain a tailwind.
