Brown’s Take: Nvidia is a must-own stock for growth investors, Ritholtz Wealth Management CEO Josh Brown said Thursday on CNBC’s “Fast Money Halftime Report.”
Investors who want to own large-cap semiconductor companies should expect volatility, he noted.
Recently, Nvidia has been less volatile and traded more like Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) or Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), but the stock isn’t going to be a safe haven if the market gets ugly, Brown said.
“In reality, if you are a growth investor or a technology investor, it’s a must own stock,” he said. “It’s a platform that, literally, you can’t not be invested in if you call yourself a growth investor and that’s probably what’s helping to hold it up.”
Brown told CNBC that investors buying Nvidia around the $200 level expecting the volatility to stay low should be careful.
NVDA Price Action: Nvidia has traded as high as $208.75 and as low as $115.67 over a 52-week period.
At market close Thursday, the stock was up 3.98% at $197.98.
