Nvidia stock has been range-bound in recent days on reports that the U.K. is considering blocking the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company’s acquisition of Arm Ltd. due to potential risks to national security.
An assessment of the $40 billion acquisition contains worrying implications for national security and the U.K. is currently inclined to reject the takeover, Bloomberg reported, citing a person familiar with government discussions.
Despite the deal possibly falling through, TheStreet’s Jim Cramer said Nvidia is in a win-win situation: If it goes through, Cramer said, the Santa Clara, Calif., chipmaker sharply broadens its offerings. If it does not, it will save a bunch of money.
Nvidia is a so-called fabless chipmaker that makes graphics processing units, or GPUs, that makes video games more realistic. It also produces AI chips used in
supercomputers, data centers, drug development and autonomous vehicles.
