Ahead of NVIDIA's (NASDAQ: NVDA) earnings release after the close on Wednesday, analysts at FBR cuts the company's price target to $14 from $16, while maintaining a Market Perform rating. Analysts said checks suggest 4Q12 PC chip sales were "challenging" and see few catalysts on a longer term basis, despite the stock's reasonable price.

"We expect more PC weakness in 1Q13 with some OEMs/ODMs anticipating a 15%–20% sequential shipment decline as smartphone/tablet cannibalization and demand weakness continue," said analyst Craig Berger.

"We are neutral on NVDA shares given ongoing demand weakness in PCs, smartphone/tablet cannibalization impacts, and a lack of meaningful catalysts for now, but we note NVDA is one of the more attractive PC chip stocks in the sector given mobile growth opportunities, its profitable model, and $5.50 of net cash," added Berger.
