(NVDA: Nasdaq)
By MKM Partners ($164.74, Aug. 11, 2017)

Nvidia’s valuation keeps us on the sidelines.

Nvidia (ticker: NVDA) shares continue to trade at a significant premium to the semiconductor peer group at 44.3 times our new fiscal 2019 earnings-per-share estimate versus the peer group average of 18.6 times.

While we believe that Nvidia’s positioning in multiple multibillion-dollar growth markets should warrant a premium to its peer group, we think that the current valuation is at an extreme, particularly with slowing year-over-year growth rates in key end-markets. Given our increased EPS estimates, we are raising our fair value estimate to $120 from $106 based on a 32 times multiple on our new fiscal 2019 EPS estimate of $3.75.

Nvidia reported fiscal second quarter (ended July) revenue of $2.230 billion and GAAP EPS of 92 cents, above consensus estimates for $1.964 billion and 70 cents. Revenue increased 56% year-over-year and 15% sequentially with revenue incremental to guidance partially driven by cryptocurrency related sales. Growth during the quarter was driven by graphics processing units (GPUs) and mostly related to the gaming and professional visualization end markets. GPU revenue was $1.900 billion (85% of overall revenue), up 59% against the year-ago period and Tegra processor revenue was $333 million (15% of overall revenue), up 101% year-over-year and flat sequentially. GAAP gross margin was 58.4% while non-GAAP gross margin was 58.6%, in line with guidance and declining sequentially, as expected, given the lapse of

(INTC) (rated at Buy, $42 price target) licensing revenue.

Nvidia delivered strong fiscal-second-quarter results and provided third-quarter guidance that was above current consensus estimates. The near-term upside to consensus expectations is partially being driven by cryptocurrency related demand. Growth is moderating, modestly, in core emerging growth areas such as the automotive and datacenter segments. We remain Neutral on Nvidia shares, which trade at a significant premium to the semiconductor peer group at 44.3 times our new fiscal 2019 EPS estimate versus the peer group average of 18.6 times. While we believe that Nvidia’s positioning in multiple multibillion dollar growth markets should warrant a premium to its peer group, we think that the current valuation is at an extreme, particularly with slowing year-over-year growth rates in key end markets.

Based on Nvidia’s outlook, we are increasing our third-quarter revenue estimate to $2.350 billion from $2.048 billion. Our GAAP EPS forecast increases to 92 cents from 72 cents previously. The current consensus revenue and EPS estimate for the third quarter are $2.140 billion and 79 cents. Nvidia continues to execute well in taking advantage of numerous growth opportunities. Even with our estimate increases, though, Nvidia shares trade at a significant premium to the semiconductor peer group at 44.3 times our new fiscal 2019 (calendar 2018) EPS estimate of $3.59 versus the peer group average of 18.6 times. While we believe that Nvidia’s positioning in multiple multibillion dollar growth markets should warrant a premium to its peer group, we think that the current valuation is at an extreme, particularly with slowing year-over-year growth rates in the high growth automotive and data center markets.

ADATA Launches ISSS314 and IM2P3388 Industrial SSDs: 3D NAND, Extreme Temps

ADATA has introduced two new families of 3D NAND-based SSDs aimed at industrial applications. Dubbed the ISSS314 and the IM2P3388, these drives are designed to handle extreme temperatures as well as humidity levels, allowing them to work reliably in very tough environmental conditions. The more powerful IM2P3388 drives use a PCIe interface and offer high performance levels along with a powerful ECC engine and encryption, whereas the less speedy ISSS314 uses a SATA interface and offers very low power consumption that barely tops 2.5 W.

The IM2P3388: M.2, High Performance, Extreme Temps, Encryption, TCG Opal

The ADATA IM2P3388 is an M.2 drive that uses a NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 interface and is based on 3D MLC NAND. This specific drive is designed to withstand ESD and EMI, up to 20 G vibration and 1500G/0.5ms shock, extreme temperatures from –40°C to +90°C, as well as high humidity (5%-95% RH, non-condensing). To put it into perspective: the IM2P3388 drives can operate in Antarctica or in the Lut Desert in Iran. In the real world, ADATA’s new SSDs will serve inside space-constrained industrial or commercial PCs, servers, military-grade systems, and embedded computers.

The IM2P3388 drives are based on a Silicon Motion controller that ADATA does not name, we suspect is the SM2260 with some additional customization. As for the NAND, the IM2P3388 SSDs use carefully selected 3D MLC that can handle high temperatures for prolonged amounts of time. The IM2P3388 takes advantage of all the capabilities of the controller and therefore supports AES-256 encryption, TCG Opal 2.0 spec, end-to-end data protection, and so on. In addition, the drive has multiple sensors that monitor its condition.

ADATA IM2P3388 SSD Specifications

As for performance, ADATA specifies the drive to offer up to 2.5 GB/s sequential read speeds and up to 1.1 GB/s sequential write speeds (when pSLC caching is used), but does not specify random performance. ADATA’s IM2P3388 will be available in 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB configurations. Keeping in mind the high density of modern flash chips, expect the entry-level models to be slower than their higher-capacity counterparts. In general, expect performance  of the IM2P3388 to be comparable to the XPG SX8000 drives featuring the SM2260 and 3D MLC.

The ISSS314: 2.5”, Extreme Temps, Low Power, Starting at 32 GB

The ADATA ISSS314 SSDs come in a traditional 2.5”/7 mm drive form-factor and use a SATA 6 Gbps interface. In order to satisfy the diverse needs of customers, ADATA will offer the ISSS314 in 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB configurations. The higher-end models will provide up to 560 MB/s sequential read and up to 520 MB/s sequential write speeds, whereas the entry-level drives will be considerably slower. As for power consumption, the new SSDs are rated to only use up to 2.5 W, which puts them into the energy efficient category.

The ISSS314 SSDs are based on an unknown controller as well as 3D MLC and 3D TLC NAND memory sorted using ADATA’s proprietary A+ testing methodology to find the higher quality chips. The industrial ISSS314 drives based on 3D MLC memory are rated to withstand shock, EMI, and extreme temperatures from –40°C to +85°C, and thus are aimed at industrial applications. By contrast, commercial 3D MLC ISSS314 SSDs are rated for –10°C to +80°C operation. Meanwhile, the 3D TLC-powered ISSS314 is guaranteed to work in a temperature range from 0°C to +70°C, but can also withstand shocks, ESD, EMI, and so on. As for features, all the ISS314 SSDs have S.M.A.R.T, a temperature sensor, hardware power detection, and flash protection.
