Nvidia Surpasses Apple to Become Second Most Valuable Public U.S. Company


Nvidia’s market value surged past $3 trillion on Wednesday, briefly overtaking Apple as the second most valuable publicly listed company globally. The technology company is known for its graphics processing units (GPUs). Nvidia is a major player in the semiconductor industry, particularly in gaming, artificial intelligence (AI), and data centres.

Investors have been flocking to Nvidia’s stock, betting heavily on the company’s dominance in the AI chip market. Nvidia’s data centre chips, which power AI models, have attracted significant attention from tech giants like Google, Microsoft, and Meta, who continue to invest billions in Nvidia’s technology.

Nvidia’s recent earnings report in May further bolstered investor sentiment. Its revenues soared by a staggering 262% year-on-year, primarily driven by massive sales of its latest “Hopper” chips. Additionally, the announcement of a 10-for-one stock split, set to take effect on June 7, has spurred even greater demand for Nvidia’s shares.

Founded in 1993, Nvidia initially gained recognition for its graphics processing chips for gaming. However, its shift towards incorporating AI-focused features into its chips has propelled its market share.

Meanwhile, Apple, struggling with slowing sales growth, has made strides to integrate AI into its product ecosystem. Though Apple’s shares have rebounded recently, the company faces increasing pressure to stay competitive in the dynamic tech landscape dominated by AI innovations.
