Differences between Investing vs Trading

NVIDIA Corporation was founded in 1993 by Jensen Huang, Chris Malachowsky, and Curtis Priem, who were both former employees of semiconductor manufacturer Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). NVIDIA is a leading American multinational technology company known for designing graphics processing units (GPUs) for gaming, and professional markets, and system-on-a-chip units (SoCs) for the mobile computing and automotive market. Headquartered in Santa Clara, California, NVIDIA is renowned for its GeForce product line, popular among gamers and creative professionals. The company's GPUs are also crucial in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning applications, significantly contributing to advancements in these fields.

NVIDIA's shares performance has seen significant growth, particularly due to its expansion into AI, data centers, and autonomous vehicles. The introduction of the CUDA platform has made its GPUs indispensable in AI research and development. The company's stock is traded under the ticker symbol NVDA. Investors value NVIDIA for its strong market position, continuous innovation, and strategic acquisitions, such as Mellanox Technologies and ARM Holdings (though the latter deal was terminated). This innovative edge and market demand for GPUs has driven substantial appreciation in NVIDIA’s stock value.

NVIDIA Corporation is a constituent of the Index US 100, a stock market index made up of 100 of the largest non-financial companies listed on the stock exchange. This inclusion reflects NVIDIA's significant market capitalization and its role as a major player in the technology sector.

NVIDIA Corporation's stock price has experienced significant volatility and growth, influenced by various factors, including technological advancements, market demand, and broader economic conditions. Here's a brief overview of the price history and factors affecting NVIDIA's share price, highlighting its recent peak:

Price History Overview

  • Early 2024: NVIDIA's stock showed robust growth, driven by strong quarterly earnings and increasing demand for its GPUs in AI and data centers.
  • June 18, 2024: The stock reached its highest price of $135.59, reflecting a 130.19% increase over the past six months. This remarkable growth is attributed to the factors mentioned above, particularly strong earnings reports, increased demand for AI and data center applications, and strategic market positioning. This upward trend reflects the company's robust performance and optimistic future outlook in the tech industry.

In summary, NVIDIA’s stock price is influenced by a combination of its innovative capabilities, market demand, financial health, strategic actions, and broader economic factors. The recent peak in June 2024 underscores the company's strong market position and investor confidence.

When you trade NVDA CFDs, you don't own any part of the company. You're simply speculating on the price movement of the stock. You can go long or short on your position, meaning you can profit from both rising and falling prices. CFD trading is also leveraged, meaning you only need to put down a small deposit to open a larger trade. This can amplify your profits but also your losses, so it's important to trade responsibly.

Investing in NVDA shares entitles you to certain rights as a shareholder. For example, you're entitled to vote at shareholders' meetings and receive dividends if the company declares them. When you trade CFDs on NVDA, you don't have any of these rights.
