Increased artificial intelligence demand contributed to Nvidia’s massive performance. According to Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang,

“Accelerated computing and generative AI have hit the tipping point. Demand is surging worldwide across companies, industries, and nations.”

Moreover, the company expects elevated figures in the next financial report. Nvidia sees first-quarter 2024 revenue increasing to $24 billion, blowing past the $22 billion estimate.

The remarkable performance comes as the chip-maker, which has massively contributed to the AI revolution, saw its shares skyrocketing by over 200% within the previous twelve months. That propelled the firm’s market capitalization towards $1.7 trillion, outpacing Amazon and Google.

Nvidia remains poised for stable growth in the longer term. Analyst Rueben Roy believes,

“They’ve got a new set of technologies that we expect to be launched later this year, which will probably talk about and so I think it’s a question of expanding their technology that they’re bringing to the table across both hardware and software as well as networking and so I think that’s going to be an important area for investors to focus on.”
