Nvidia outvalues Alphabet and Amazon. Four charts depict the chipmaker's $1.8 trillion value rise.

Nvidia overtook Alphabet as America's third-most valued business on Wednesday. The chipmaker's stock has soared since 2023 because to AI. These four charts show its incredible rise. Nvidia now outvalues Alphabet, Amazon, and China's stock market.

The chipmaker's market valuation exceeded Amazon's on Tuesday and Alphabet's on Wednesday to $1.83 trillion at Wednesday's close. Since 2023, Nvidia stock has risen over 400% because to AI. It dominates the GPU industry, which powers enormous language models like ChatGPT, so stock pickers have long seen it as a possible winner from the IT boom.

Jensen Huang, who established Nvidia at a Silicon Valley Denny's in 1993, has seen his fortune rise from $14 billion to $65 billion since 2023, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. These four charts show the semiconductor business's remarkable AI-powered growth to the US's third most valuable public corporation.

Nvidia's supremacy is best shown by its outperformance of other Big Tech firms, which have also benefited from AI, since last year. Over that time, the chipmaker has gained 404%, four times more than Microsoft, Apple, Alphabet, and Amazon.

Mark Zuckerberg's "Year of Efficiency" expense cutbacks have helped Facebook parent Meta Platforms rise 279%, the only mega-cap tech firm to equal its share-price gains. Those stock-price improvements helped Nvidia surpass Alphabet and Amazon.

Dow Jones said that Nvidia outperformed Jeff Bezos' e-commerce behemoth for the first time since 2002 on Tuesday. The chipmaker ranks third in America's value, after Microsoft and Apple, but it's $1 trillion from overtaking either.

After posting triple-digit increases and joining the "Magnificent Seven" mega-cap tech club last year, several analysts viewed Nvidia and Tesla as providing similar returns in 2023. While Nvidia has started 2024 on a high by rising more than 50%, Tesla has fallen as investors worry about EV demand slowing.

Elon Musk's firm is now valued $607 billion, less than a third of the chipmaker's estimate, showing how swiftly Wall Street can shift. As the third-largest member of the S&P 500, Nvidia's 13-month performance may be compared to it. Since January 2023, AI euphoria and investors' belief that the Federal Reserve will decrease interest rates have driven the index up 30%. Even that couldn't stop Nvidia's fourfold rise.
