“It doesn’t happen often to see a $700 billion company move 25% in one day — I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Richard Windsor, founder of independent researcher Radio Free Mobile based in Abu Dhabi. For as long as the AI craze persists, “Nvidia is in a good position.”
A trillion dollars of data center infrastructure will be upgraded to handle so-called accelerated computing, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder Jensen Huang told analysts, letting them run generative AI tools such as ChatGPT. Huang said the firm saw “incredible orders.”
Nvidia’s outlook was so strong that Morgan Stanley analyst Joseph Moore said the numbers match what they had in mind for 2025. “The transformational surge in AI spending is paying off much earlier than expected,” he wrote in a note.
There is no arguing with the size of the sales beat by Nvidia. It is truly impressive. Of course, it begs the question who is buying? The company announced in late March they have altered the best-selling H800 chip, so it will comply with prohibitions on selling high tech to China. The upshot is a Chinese company will need more of these chips to achieve the same efficiency. That’s likely to have been a significant factor in the jump in Nvidia’s sales.Click HERE to subscribe to Fuller Treacy Money Back to top
