Nvidia And This AI Stock Lead 5 Names Near Buy Points

Artificial intelligence stocks Nvidia (NVDA) and Arista Networks (ANET) lead this weekend’s watch list of five stocks near buy points. In addition to NVDA stock and ANET, the group includes Datadog (DDOG), whose computer-network monitoring software business should get a boost from AI adoption.


Credit-card processing giant Mastercard (MA) and DexCom (DXCM), a leader in glucose-monitoring systems for diabetes patients, round out the list.

DDOG stock is part of the flagship IBD 50 list of leading growth stocks, while NVDA is part of the IBD Leaderboard portfolio of elite stocks.

Yet even amid that negative news, NVDA stock has hung tough. In each of the past three weeks, NVDA stock has moved up or down less than 1.5%, etching out a four weeks-tight pattern. That establishes a new buy point, if NVDA stock clears the top of the 439.90 range. Investors could use Friday’s high of 432.14 as an early entry.
