Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star dreamjob, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

NVIDIA has opportunities in a very large and profitable market -- smart phones. They offer a competitive processor and they are displaying signs of a strong, growing company (elevated CROIC, growth in owner earnings, BV, earnings and sales). To top this off, this company looks cheap with a TTM owner earnings yield of about 8%. The debt is manageable as well.
