Nvidia Passes Microsoft to Become Largest U.S. Company
Quick Glance: Nvidia Surpasses Apple and Microsoft to Become World's Most Valuable Company
  • Nvidia has leapfrogged Microsoft and Apple to become the most valuable company in the world, driven by chip demand and investor excitement over artificial intelligence.

  • The company’s shares climbed 3.2% to $135.18, bringing its market capitalization to $3.332 trillion, surpassing the two tech giants that have long competed for the top spot on US stock markets.

  • Nvidia has transitioned from a $300 billion company struggling with a chip glut to one of the most powerful tech companies globally, benefiting from the boom in demand for chips capable of training and running powerful generative AI models.

  • Its growth has single-handedly driven a third of the 14% year-to-date increase in the benchmark S&P 500 index, surprising even bullish observers.
