Nvidia’s stock price skyrocketed on Tuesday, reaching an all-time high and propelling its market value to within striking distance of Apple. This surge has ignited speculation that Nvidia could dethrone Apple for the number two spot on Wall Street’s most valuable companies list.

Investors piled into Nvidia on Tuesday, driving the stock price up nearly 6% to a record-breaking $1,149.39 intraday. This stellar performance follows Nvidia’s upbeat earnings forecast and announcement of a stock split, both of which fueled investor enthusiasm. The company’s market capitalization now sits at a staggering $2.8 trillion, just $100 billion shy of Apple’s $2.9 trillion valuation.

Analysts attribute Nvidia’s meteoric rise to several key factors. Firstly, the company’s growth trajectory seems unstoppable. Despite a high forward earnings multiple, analysts believe Nvidia’s future potential justifies its current valuation. Additionally, Nvidia is perfectly positioned to capitalize on the booming Artificial Intelligence (AI) market. The company’s data center segment revenue surged fivefold last week, reflecting the high demand for its powerful AI chips. Furthermore, tech giants like Alphabet, Microsoft, and Amazon are fiercely competing for a limited supply of Nvidia’s high-end chips, further driving up their value.

While Nvidia enjoys a period of hyper-growth, Apple has stumbled recently. The company’s stock price has fallen roughly 2% year-to-date, lagging behind the broader market. This slump is attributed to weak iPhone sales and stiff competition in the Chinese market. Apple has also been slower to adopt generative AI technologies, a cutting-edge field where rivals like Microsoft and Google are making significant strides.

Microsoft currently holds the crown as the world’s most valuable company, boasting a market cap of $3.1 trillion. The dramatic rise of Nvidia coupled with Apple’s recent struggles create a fascinating dynamic in the upper echelon of Big Tech companies. While it remains to be seen if Nvidia can topple Apple for the second-place spot, its recent bullish performance makes it a clear contender.
