Following a successful quarter as American tech company, Nvidia reported twice the number compared to their expected earnings, the shares of the company have now dropped to as much as 7% on a negative tweet from Citron Research.

According to the tweet, the outlook for the company’s shares might drop down back to around $90 by 2017.

Citron Research stated that although they have been a fan of the company’s stocks, they are forecasting a rebound for the company by next year.

Citron Research also emphasized that the company is showing a slow growth outlook or a lack of evidence that the company is showing a steady growth given the amount of competition between data-center companies.

The criticism also showed that they believe that the shares of the tech company are overvalued as other rival companies like Advanced Micro Devices and Intel are poising a threat to Nvidia next year.

According to Andrew Left from Citron Research, other risks aside from growing competition are facing the company as it has been shifting its focus from gaming to data centers. Other markets and investors also believe that the main revenue driver for the company is from the gaming sector.
