Investors love technology stocks, as their rapid growth and market momentum are undeniably attractive.

Still, many point to the high valuations commonly found within these stocks, steering away those with a value-conscious approach.

But for those that don’t mind valuations, three high-growth stocks – NVIDIA (NVDA), Celestica (CLS), and Uber Technologies (UBER) – could all be considerations. All three boast big growth trajectories and sport-improved earnings outlooks, with the latter reflecting optimism among analysts.

Let’s take a closer look at each.

NVIDIA

NVIDIA has been the dominant story in 2023, with its artificial intelligence (AI) operations providing significant tailwinds and causing analysts to raise their earnings expectations notably. This favorable trend in estimate revisions is illustrated below.

The hype surrounding AI has NVDA forecasted to grow significantly, with Zacks Consensus Estimates suggesting 220% earnings growth in its current year on 81% higher revenues. And in FY25, earnings and revenue are forecasted to see improvements of 50% and 43%, respectively.

Shares presently trade at a 39.6X forward earnings multiple, beneath the 55.6X five-year median and highs of 83.3X in 2022. Investors have had little issue forking up the premium given the company’s forecasted growth, with shares up more than 180% year-to-date.

Celestica

Celestica is one of the world's largest electronics manufacturing services companies, serving the computer and communications sectors. Analysts have taken their earnings expectations higher across the board, landing the stock into a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).

The company’s shares aren’t valuation stretched given its growth trajectory, currently trading at a 9.9X forward earnings multiple. Celestica’s earnings are forecasted to see 20% growth on 9% higher revenues in its current year.

Celestica has been a consistent earnings performer, exceeding the Zacks Consensus EPS Estimate by an average of 12% across its last four releases. Just in its latest print, the company posted a 15% EPS surprise and reported revenue 6% ahead of expectations.

As we can see below, the market reacted strongly to the release post-earnings.
