On CAPS, 96% of the 5,583 members who have rated NVIDIA believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star dreamjob, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

NVIDIA has opportunities in a very large and profitable market -- smart phones. They offer a competitive processor and they are displaying signs of a strong, growing company (elevated CROIC, growth in owner earnings, BV, earnings and sales). To top this off, this company looks cheap with a TTM owner earnings yield of about 8%. The debt is manageable as well.  

NVIDIA was ahead of the curve launching its mobile Tegra processor, but investing gains haven't followed as expected, with the company struggling to gain momentum in the smartphone market. The Motley Fool's latest premium report examines NVIDIA's stumbling blocks, but also homes in on opportunities that many investors are overlooking.
