Nvidia 's furious rally is breaking new ground in stock chart analysis that even the dot-com bubble couldn't pull off, according to BTIG. "NVDA recently traded ~100% above its 200 DMA. In other words, NVDA is in a league of its own," the note said. To make another parallel to the dot-com bubble, Cisco also briefly passed Microsoft in market cap in March of 2000, according to Krinsky. Shares of Nvidia are now up more than 150% year to date, and its market cap is still over $3 trillion despite a Friday slump.

At stake is one of the top two spots in the Technology Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLK) , whose June rebalance is based on market cap values as of Friday's close. The market caps of Microsoft, Apple and Nvidia were all within $100 billion of each other as of Thursday's close, according to a FactSet calculation. This type of big shift in an index fund is unusual, but not unprecedented. The fund tracks an index from S & P Dow Jones Indices that uses weighting caps to keep the index in bounds. Depending on how many shares of Nvidia are required, it might cause a short-term spike in the name," Bajaj said.

Broadcom shares rose about 12% on Thursday after the company posted second fiscal quarter earnings that beat analysts' estimates and showed that it's benefiting from the artificial intelligence boom. Broadcom reported earnings per share of $10.96 ahead of LSEG consensus estimates of $10.84 per share. Analysts see Broadcom as a beneficiary of increasing investments in AI. Bank of America analysts reiterated a buy rating and said they consider Broadcom a top AI pick because it is positioned to grow in custom AI chips and Ethernet networking. They also said Broadcom can upsell VMware to enterprise customers deploying AI.

Alongside its results, Oracle said it is partnering with Microsoft and OpenAI to help supply additional computing capacity for the startup. Analysts from Citi said Oracle's sluggish revenue for the fourth quarter was offset by "tremendous RPO bookings growth." UBS analysts said the highlight of Oracle's results is its "extraordinary sequential backlog growth of $18 billion." Morgan Stanley analysts said Oracle's quarter was mixed, but the "near term AI build-out likely wins the day and sustains momentum in shares."

Morgan Stanley named a new top pick which it called a "unique Nvidia proxy." "We see Aspeed as a unique NVIDIA-related play, being the sole BMC supplier for GB200 and a key supplier to help realize Omniverse adoption," said Morgan Stanley analysts in a June 7 note. Morgan Stanley said with an average selling price of $100 per chip, it estimates the company could enjoy gross margins of 90%. The positive outlook for cloud capital expenditure is also set to benefit the data center supply chain, according to Morgan Stanley. That expected growth would be a 42-point acceleration from just 2% year-on-year growth in 2023, Morgan Stanley said.

Buying stocks with a rising exposure to artificial intelligence could lead to outperformance later this year, according to Morgan Stanley. But for investors who have missed out on the AI trade, Morgan Stanley says it's not too late. In a recent note, a team of eight Morgan Stanley strategists led by Edward Stanley highlighted a group of stocks where artificial intelligence is beginning to play a bigger role in their business, which they called "the enablers." "We believe this strategy of picking stocks where AI materiality is increasing will continue to work for investors for the remainder of 2024," Morgan Stanley wrote. Earlier this week, both Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs reiterated buy ratings on First Solar.

The artificial intelligence boom is fueling demand for power, with many tech companies rapidly developing infrastructure as they compete for dominance. Data centers house vast amounts of computing power needed for AI workloads, and are intense power-guzzling workhorses. But the need for power goes beyond data centers and other infrastructure, according to Goldman. Goldman cited studies which showed that AI data centers can consume up to 10 times the energy of their regular counterparts. Taiwan's tech industry extends across a "comprehensive global AI supply chain," with tech manufacturers consuming a "substantial" amount of power.

Shares of Dell Technologies fell more than 16% Friday after investors were discouraged by the company's lower-than-expected artificial intelligence server backlog and an estimated decline in margins. Bernstein analysts said the "principle disappointment" in Dell's results was that operating margins for its Infrastructure Solutions Group compressed year over year. Additionally, operating profits were flat compared with the same period last year, even though the company brought in around $1.7 billion in incremental AI server revenues. The analysts said this resurfaced concerns that Dell's AI servers are being sold at "near-zero margins." Bank of America analysts said Dell reported a strong quarter, and they reiterated their buy rating on the stock.

While stock splits don't affect a company's value, they can catalyze a move higher or lower, according to Wolfe Research. Artificial intelligence chipmaker Nvidia announced a 10-for-1 stock split as part of its quarterly earnings report on May 22. The firm examined the roughly 3,000 stock splits from large-cap U.S. companies since 1993 to examine their impact. Here are the favorable criteria Senyek identified: Large market capitalization Higher absolute share price Multiple stock splits in the past "Larger cap, higher price and multiple splits is the 'sweet spot' for stock splits' signaling mechanism," said Senyek. "For what it's worth, the pending Nvidia stock split meets the three aforementioned positive criteria."

"With yields holding firm at elevated levels , large caps continue to outperform small caps. Hopes for multiple rate cuts from the Federal Reserve this year have dimmed after recent inflation readings showed signs of stickiness. An economy that is growing more slowly, but with cooler inflation, could be the combination small caps need. Small caps could also benefit from an uptick in the global economy that benefits areas like manufacturing that has heavy representation in the small-cap index. Investors who really want exposure to small caps could also look outside of the U.S. Wolfe Research analyst Rob Ginsberg said in a May 29 note to clients that global small caps are outperforming their U.S. counterparts and are poised for a potential breakout.
