According to Russ Mould, the investment director at AJ Bell, during the gold rush in the mid-1800s, the individuals who profited the most were not the ones who searched for gold, but those who supplied the tools and equipment necessary to extract it.

“Nvidia is effectively playing the same role today in this tech revolution.”

Companies rushing to upgrade their AI offerings are driving soaring demand for Nvidia’s chips, helping the Silicon Valley firm to forecast a whopping 233% growth in current-quarter revenue. This is above market expectations of a 208% rise.

Additional chip manufacturers that have investments in AI also experienced a surge in their stock prices. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD.O) saw an increase of approximately 11%, while Broadcom (AVGO.O) experienced a 6.3% rise. The Philadelphia chip index (.SOX) surged by 4.97% to reach a record high, marking its most significant one-day gain since May 2023.

The S&P 500 surged 2.11% to a record high, and the Nasdaq jumped nearly 3%, leaving it just short of its first record-high close since November 2021.

Nvidia, which dominates 80% of the high-end AI chip market, reported a more than threefold increase in fourth-quarter revenue from a year ago, reaching $22.10 billion.

Even though Nvidia’s stock more than tripled in value last year, the company’s forward earnings valuation has decreased due to the rapid rise in analysts’ financial expectations.
