The shares of Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) are up 2.4% to trade at $190.96 this morning, after BofA-Merrill Lynch hiked its price target to $250 from $225, territory not traded at in roughly a year. The new target is the highest on Wall Street, and the analyst in coverage expressed "increased confidence" in the chipmaker's growth profile. More specifically, the brokerage firm sees Nvidia as "on the cusp of benefiting from the next-big AI landmark."

Should today's results hold, it will be Nvidia stock's fifth straight win and its longest winning streak in over six months. This rally has NVDA on track to topple its 320-day moving average for the first time on a closing basis since Oct. 19. However, the $191 level looms overhead; an area that stifled rallies back in April and September.

While Nvidia stock is no stranger to bull notes lately, there's still room for more. For starters, nine analysts still rate the security a "hold" or "strong sell." But in addition, NVDA's consensus 12-month price target of $192.19 was just a slim 0.8% premium from last night's closing perch at $186.53.

Plus, short-term options premiums on Nvidia stock look relatively cheap at the moment, based on the equity's Schaeffer’s Volatility Index (SVI) of 41%, which ranks in the 15th percentile of its annual range. Lastly, the shares have shown a tendency to make big moves in the past year, too, as the equity's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) comes in at 96 (out of 100).
