The company’s top-line is also undergoing some turbulence; the Zacks Consensus Sales Estimate of $6 billion suggests a Y/Y decline of more than 15%.

Top-line results have also been consistently strong; NVDA has chained together 14 consecutive revenue beats. Below is a chart illustrating the company’s revenue on a quarterly basis.

Zacks Names “Single Best Pick to Double”

From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts each have chosen their favorite to skyrocket +100% or more in months to come. From those 5, Director of Research Sheraz Mian hand-picks one to have the most explosive upside of all.

It’s a little-known chemical company that’s up 65% over last year, yet still dirt cheap. With unrelenting demand, soaring 2022 earnings estimates, and $1.5 billion for repurchasing shares, retail investors could jump in at any time.

This company could rival or surpass other recent Zacks’ Stocks Set to Double like Boston Beer Company which shot up +143.0% in little more than 9 months and NVIDIA which boomed +175.9% in one year.
