  • Strategic Partnerships and Acquisitions: Nvidia regularly makes strategic acquisitions to accelerate product expansion and establishes strong partnerships to enhance growth.
  • Strong and Diverse Portfolio: Nvidia's product portfolio is diversified with graphics cards, wireless communication, PC processors and automotive hardware. This enables Nvidia to meet a wide range of customer needs.

  • Low margins: despite strong financial performance, Nvidia shows financial ratios involving still low margins, which may weigh on its cash flow.
  • Dependence on certain products: While Nvidia's product portfolio is diversified, the company is still heavily dependent on certain materials that generate a very large portion of profits. This makes the company more vulnerable.
  • High operating costs: Nvidia still leases many of its properties, which results in higher operating costs, especially in certain strategic areas where rents are rising.
  • High competition: The group also faces strong direct and indirect competition across all of its segments, which tends to drive down selling prices and thus reduce profit margins.
  • Low yield: Although Nvidia has been paying a dividend to its shareholders for many years, its current yield is very low and only 0.07%.
