The market euphorically received the report itself as well as comments on the development of Nvidia's business (NVDA.US). In fact, every possible comment was made from the company's side that would support the bulls. From higher demand for chips for AI applications, competitive advantages, to a shift to high-margin sales of entire AI supercomputer systems for large companies. The company provided a 50% higher forecast for Q2 earnings and indicated that it is increasing production capacity to meet 'charging demand' for growth-related semiconductors. The stock is gaining nearly 25% ahead of Wall Street's open, and if positive sentiment is maintained, the company's capitalization will approach nearly $1 trillion.

With increasing global demand, artificial intelligence mania may support the company's performance for the rest of the year. CEO Huang called the current situation a 'computer transformation', which means an increase in AI computing and generative power. He relayed that the company began producing AI chips as early as August 2022 which allowed it to satisfy the growing market demand faster than its competitors.

Demand was extremely brisk in January, and the company was forced to place additional orders for the second half of this year. The market welcomed the news, getting confirmation that the rally in the stock has significant justification. In a recent interview, Elon Musk indicated that graphics processing units (GPUs) are extremely hard to come by. With large capacities and demand outstripping market supply, Nvidia has a number of sales advantages with which to increase margins.Reuters Graphics
