NVIDIA Corp has become the first chipmaker to ever reach a staggering $1 trillion market capitalization, driven by the soaring demand for artificial intelligence (AI) chips. The company’s stock price experienced a surge of over 25% in a single day on 25 May, and this upward momentum continues unabated. As its remarkable earnings results continue to captivate the business world, NVIDIA’s triumph has reverberated across social media platforms. Numerous industry experts expect the company to likely dominate the AI industry, reveals the Social Media Analytics Platform of GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.
Against this backdrop, social media discussions on Twitter related to NVIDIA surged 140% in the last week of May over the previous week. While some influencers consider the valuation as overpriced, others believe that the company’s exceptional growth prospects justify its current valuation.
Smitarani Tripathy, Social Media Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “With its substantial market share in GPUs for machine learning and a growing interest in the boundless potential of generative AI, the company is poised to exert a profound influence on the AI industry, opine most of the Twitter influencers.”
“Furthermore, NVIDIA’s strategic plans to maintain its leading position in generative AI continue to experience explosive growth further solidify its advantage. Only a handful of experts acknowledge the potential threat of competition from smaller players, further underscoring NVIDIA’s dominant position in the AI landscape.”
Below are a few popular influencer opinions captured by GlobalData’s Social Media Analytics Platform:
