    Nvidia overtakes Tesla as most-traded stock while AI boosts revenue 265%

    Nvidia also overtook Elon Musk’s Tesla as Wall Street's most-traded stock in the United States over the last 30 trading sessions.
    Nvidia, one of the biggest producers of graphics processing units (GPUs), reported a 265% year-on-year increase in revenue amid rising global demand for artificial intelligence (AI) equipment.

    According to the latest fourth-quarter financial results, Nvidia recorded revenue of $22.1 billion in Q4, up 22% from Q3 and 265% from the prior year period. Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia, attributed the drive in sales to the surge in the global demand for accelerated computing and generative AI. The chipmaker currently boasts a market capitalization of $1.67 trillion.
    The results come as Nvidia has overtaken Elon Musk’s Tesla as Wall Street’s most-traded stock. About $30 billion worth of Nvidia shares were moved among traders in the last 30 trading sessions, which averaged roughly $22 billion for Tesla in the same timeframe, according to a Reuters report.

    On Jan. 27, Musk confirmed Tesla’s plan to spend more than $500 million to procure AI hardware from Nvidia in 2024 alone. He said:

    “The table stakes for being competitive in AI are at least several billion dollars per year at this point.”
    Tesla also has plans to buy AI-related hardware from Nvidia’s biggest GPU-manufacturing competitor, AMD.

    In December 2023, Yann LeCun, the chief AI scientist for Facebook AI Research (FAIR) at Meta, acknowledged Nvidia’s current dominance on the AI hardware industry. He further said that the chip manufacturer is fueling the AI war:

    “I know (Nvidia CEO) Jensen. There’s an AI war and he’s supplying the weapons.”
    On the other hand, LeCun criticized the extended use of text-based models to train generative AI systems. “Text is a very poor source of information,” he said, adding, “Train a system on the equivalent of 20,000 years of reading material, and they still don’t understand that if A is the same as B, then B is the same as A.”
