Shares of NVIDIA have outperformed the Zacks General Semiconductor industry in the year-to-date period (+53.8% vs. +34.3%). The Zacks analyst believes that NVIDIA has been benefiting from the coronavirus-induced work-from-home and learn-at-home wave.

The company has also been gaining from strong growth in GeForce desktop and notebook GPUs, which is boosting gaming revenues. A surge in Hyperscale demand remains a tailwind for the company’s Data Center business. The management, however, expects the company’s near-term revenues to be impacted by the pandemic.

Mastercard shares have gained +20.2% over the last six months against the Zacks Financial Transaction Services industry’s gain of +3.3%. The Zacks analyst believes that numerous acquisitions have helped the company expand its addressable markets and drive new revenue streams.

The COVID crisis provides an opportunity for the company to expedite the shift to digital forms of payment. The company is well-poised to gain from its consistent cash-generating abilities. Steep costs, however, might stress the company's margins. Its cross-border volumes are likely to remain suppressed due to pandemic-related restrictions on travel and entertainment.

Shares of Boeing have lost -10% in the past three months against the Zacks Aerospace & Defense industry’s loss of -1%. The Zacks analyst believes that long-term prospects of global services unit and increasing fiscal defense budget are expected to boost Boeing's growth.

The company reported a solid 54% year-over-year growth in commercial deliveries in the first quarter. Boeing's revenue exposure is spread across more than 90 countries around the globe. However, due to reduced commercial service volume, its operating cash flows continue to be impacted by a continued increase in commercial airplane inventory.
