America has a new favorite brand: Nvidia, the computer chip company that's helping power an artificial intelligence revolution. The result is a measurement "of the reputations of companies most on the minds of Americans," Axios wrote on Wednesday. Both Nvidia and second-place 3M — a multi-industry conglomerate based in Maplewood, Minnesota — were the only two companies on the list to score an "excellent" reputation. Other consumer brands from last year's top five — Costco, Trader Joe's and Chick-fil-A — rank 11th, 13th and 21st, respectively. 3 on last year's list, didn't qualify as one of the country's most-visible companies this year.

Traditionally, value investing and growth investing are considered two distinct investment strategies. Value investors look for stocks they believe the market has undervalued and may be trading for less than their "intrinsic" value. Value investors often employ "bottom-up" investing, which focuses on individual companies rather than the overall market or industry. Growth investing focuses on companies expected to grow at an above-average rate compared to other companies. Is there a way to introduce a margin of safety to a growth stock using options?

While known for sizeable pullbacks in the past, the upward trajectory of Nvidia's stock last year and this year cannot be denied. We've been in Nvidia stock since 2019, years before the AI revolution was sparked by ChatGPT's viral moment shortly after its late 2022 launch. Through its Nvidia AI Enterprise service, Nvidia is in the process of building out a potentially massive software business. With that, let's think about Nvidia stock from the perspective of a long-term investor— and that's the key consideration, the investment horizon. At the beginning of the year, Nvidia stock traded at $481 per share on a $20.80 forward earnings estimate or a forward P/E multiple of 23 times.

Middle managers are becoming an endangered species in Corporate America, with some companies viewing the role as obsolete , writes Business Insider's Lindsay Dodgson. Remote work, tech efficiencies, and a general push to cut costs have contributed to middle managers' demise. It's a strategy Corporate America, particularly Big Tech, deployed in 2023. The "year of efficiency," as Mark Zuckerberg dubbed it, was all about flattening organizations, and middle managers were the ones getting squished . The death of middle managers could also fuel the current dismantling of another cohort: the middle class .

Tesla could use more of it," said Westly, who is managing director of venture capital firm The Westly Group and an early Tesla investor. Just how much of a liability Musk is for Tesla, however, Westly said was "for the board to decide."

The 61-year-old Silicon Valley veteran running Nvidia has overseen a $2 trillion surge in its value since the start of last year. Justin Sullivan/Getty ImagesThe hype behind Nvidia's chips is no joke. But competitors have been busy developing AI chips of their own to reduce reliance on Nvidia's increasingly expensive offerings. AMD CEO Lisa Su, who's Huang's cousin, is aiming to pry Nvidia customers away with a chip named the MI300X that costs between $10,000 and $15,000. If they succeed in using Triton, they could be one step closer to a future in which alternatives to Nvidia's chips are easier to use.

Nvidia's Hopper chips include the H100, which was announced in 2022 and faced severe supply shortages last year as the AI gold rush intensified. Tuesday's AWS news represents a pushout in demand for Nvidia chips, not a loss of it. That would be the so-called "digestion" phase for AI chips that Wall Street has been speculating about since last year. If anything, AWS deciding to wait for the more-powerful Blackwell chips could mean the digestion phase is further out on the horizon than initially thought. Unlike last year, when Nvidia's chips were in such short supply, there are now rival chips out there, such as AMD's MI300X, which is angling for a corner of the inferencing market .

Nvidia announced a 10-for-1 forward stock split in its fiscal first-quarter earnings report on Wednesday. Stock splits do nothing to change the financial fundamentals of a company but they so make each share cheaper, which can have a positive psychological effect on retail investors. Nvidia said the stock split will make ownership "more accessible to employees and investors," the release said. Nvidia shares closed on Wednesday at $949.50. Alphabet , Amazon and Tesla all orchestrated stock splits in 2022.

Jensen Huang, co-founder and chief executive officer of Nvidia Corp., during the Nvidia GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in San Jose, California, US, on Tuesday, March 19, 2024. Nvidia's most important clients for its graphics processing units are the big cloud providers — Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Oracle Cloud. For example, CoreWeave, a GPU cloud, is currently quoting $4.25 per hour to rent an Nvidia H100. Huang said Meta has declared its intention to spend billions on 350,000 Nvidia chips, even though the company isn't a cloud provider. Meta's cluster of servers is an example of "essential infrastructure for AI production," Huang said, or, "what we refer to as AI factories."

In what was the most anticipated quarter this earnings season, Nvidia far outpaced lofty expectations on the top and bottom lines. Adjusted gross margin of 78.9% also beat the Street's 77.2% estimate, according to market data platform FactSet. Through its Nvidia AI Enterprise service, Nvidia is in the process of building out a potentially massive software business. Nvidia said Tesla's use of Nvidia AI infrastructure "paved the way" for the "breakthrough performance" of full self-driving version 12. Kress expects sovereign AI revenue to approach the high single-digit billions of dollars this year from nothing last year.

Lam Yik Fei | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesPrior to the recent AI boom, Nvidia was known as the primary maker of chips used for 3D gaming. That's not to say that Nvidia is at risk of losing a ton of the AI chip business to rivals. Piper Sandler analysts expect it to keep at least 75% of the AI accelerator market, even as companies like Google build their own custom chips.
