Nvidia’s Meteoric Rise: From Taiwan to a $3 Trillion Milestone

This week, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang received a rock star’s welcome in Taiwan, his birthplace. Meanwhile, in the U.S., investors showed unwavering confidence in Nvidia’s stock, now a primary proxy for artificial intelligence. Nvidia’s market value soared to $3.01 trillion, briefly surpassing Apple and trailing only Microsoft. This milestone marks Nvidia as the third U.S. company to close above the $3 trillion market cap, as tracked by Dow Jones Market Data Group.

Nvidia’s Market Surge and Upcoming Stock Split

Nvidia’s stock surge precedes its 10-for-1 stock split. Shareholders of record as of Thursday, June 6, will receive the split shares after trading closes on Friday, June 7. Trading with the new share price will commence on Monday, June 10.

Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives highlighted the significant long-term potential for Nvidia, stating, “For elite, transformational tech stories like Nvidia and the AI Revolution, investors must see the forest through the trees to where this spending wave can head over the next three years. We believe 60% to 70% of enterprises will ultimately head down the AI use case path, with an estimated $1 trillion in incremental AI spend over the next decade.”

Nvidia’s Stock Performance and Dividend Increase

Nvidia’s stock closed at an all-time high of $1,224.40 on Wednesday, translating to $122.44 per share post-split. This remarkable performance reflects a gain of over 200% this year. Additionally, Nvidia recently increased its quarterly dividend payout by 150%, raising it to $0.10 per share.

The AI Revolution and Nvidia’s Future

Nvidia’s ascent is emblematic of the broader AI revolution. With increasing enterprise adoption and substantial projected spending, Nvidia is poised to remain at the forefront of this transformative technology. Investors are keenly aware of the long-term opportunities, making Nvidia a cornerstone in AI-related investments.
