Nvidia’s stock market value on verge of overtaking Amazon

Nvidia’s stock market value on verge of overtaking Amazon

By Noel Randewich

(Reuters) – Wall Street’s enthusiasm about artificial intelligence has Nvidia on the verge of becoming more valuable than Amazon for the first time in two decades, and the AI chipmaker is not far behind Google-owner Alphabet.

A 40% surge in Nvidia so far in 2024 has elevated its market capitalization to $1.715 trillion as of mid-day trading on Wednesday, only about 3% below Amazon’s $1.767 trillion value, and less than 6% below Alphabet’s $1.812 trillion value, according to LSEG data.

Nvidia’s shares gained 1.8% to $694.48 after an optimistic report from Morgan Stanley. Nvidia reports quarterly results on Feb. 21.

Morgan Stanley raised its price target to $750 from $603, with analyst Joseph Moore writing in a client note that “AI demand continues to surge”.

After Nvidia’s stock more than tripled in 2023, it has already become the U.S. stock market’s fifth most valuable company.

Nvidia has been a top beneficiary of technology companies’ race to build AI into their products and services, with Meta Platforms and other Big Tech companies buying billions of dollars worth of Nvidia’s graphics processors.

AI developers face months-long waiting lists to use Nvidia’s processors through cloud-computing providers, although those wait times are coming down, Morgan Stanley’s Moore wrote.

The last time Nvidia was more valuable than Amazon was in 2002, when they were each worth under $6 billion.

An early leader in the AI race, Microsoft in January overtook Apple to become the world’s most valuable company. Behind that duo, among the world’s most valuable publicly-listed companies, are state oil giant Saudi Aramco, Alphabet and Amazon.

Saudi Aramco has a $2-trillion market capitalization, making it the world’s third most valuable publicly listed company, according to LSEG data. However, over 90% of that company is closely held by the government of Saudi Arabia and less than 2% of its shares are available for trading by investors.
