Stacy Rasgon an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein said, “The company is printing money at this point. And the prospect for continued growth from here still seems solid.”

The company is a world leader in graphic chips and has surpassed high expectations. Nvidia controls about 80% of the market for accelerators in the AI data centers which are operated by Amazon.com Inc.’s AWS, Alphabet Inc.’s Google Cloud and Microsoft Corp.’s Azure.
