Last week, Nvidia’s better-than-expected earnings report significantly boosted the semiconductor sector, highlighting the growing demand for AI technology. This favorable backdrop has spilled over to Dell, which is also focused on capitalizing on the AI trend.

Adding to the optimism, Loop Capital analyst Ananda Baruah maintained a Buy rating on Dell stock Tuesday and raised the price target from $125 to $185, further boosting investor confidence.

Dell’s upcoming first-quarter 2025 earnings report, scheduled for May 30 after the market close, is also in focus.

Notably, the consensus EPS estimate has been revised upward by 5.4% over the past 30 days, indicating increased confidence among analysts. Revenues are expected to rise 3.7% to $21.7 billion in the company’s fiscal first quarter, per Benzinga Pro.
