Amazon vs. Nvidia 

The last time Nvidia outranked Amazon was back in 2002 when both were worth less than 6 billion dollars each. Following Amazon’s holiday quarter sales that were higher than expected last month, investors are eagerly awaiting Nvidia’s quarterly results on February 21st, marking the last of the mega-cap companies to report this earnings season. Expectations for the report are soaring: shares have surged by 47% since the beginning of the year, making it the biggest gainer among S&P 500 components.

Outstanding quarterly results and strong forecasts from Nvidia a year ago showed that the chipmaker is at the forefront of supplying technology companies working on so-called generative artificial intelligence, such as chatbots and image creation. The bet on high demand for AI has propelled Nvidia’s stock, making it the most profitable among the so-called “Magnificent Seven” with a 223% surge over the last 12 months.
