Goldman Sachs and Citi anticipate continued growth for Nvidia supplier Hynix following a 90% increase

SK Hynix Inc.: A Key Player in the AI Revolution

Shares in South Korea’s SK Hynix Inc. have soared over 90% in the past year, and Wall Street analysts are predicting even more growth ahead. As the largest supplier of high-bandwidth memory chips to Nvidia’s artificial intelligence products, SK Hynix is at the forefront of the AI revolution.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. recently upgraded its stock-price target for SK Hynix to 290,000 won ($210), implying a potential gain of 25%. Citigroup Inc. also raised its prediction to 350,000 won, more than 50% higher than the current share price. Analysts are bullish on SK Hynix due to the sky-high potential for AI and the upcoming earnings announcement.

SK Hynix is expected to report a second-quarter operating profit of 5 trillion won, the most in six years, driven by strong demand for high-end devices for AI applications. The company’s turnaround from last year’s losses is fueled by the recovery in memory chip prices.

While some investors are cautious about the company’s valuation, which is now trading at 2.9 times book value, others believe that SK Hynix still has room to grow. Citi’s most bullish price target of 350,000 won is based on previous peaks in SK Hynix stock, with added discount to account for uncertainties.

However, there are concerns about potential oversupply of memory chips and Samsung Electronics Co.’s rumored entry into the HBM chip market. This could lead to increased volatility in the industry, but analysts remain optimistic about SK Hynix’s long-term prospects.
