NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) Makes History, Hits $3 Trillion Market Cap Milestone

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) hit a market capitalization milestone of $3 trillion, placing it in the elite league alongside Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) as one of only three companies to reach this valuation.

Nvidia stock closed on Wednesday with a significant gain of over 5%, elevating its market capitalization to $3 trillion. This milestone allowed Nvidia to surpass Apple’s market cap during the trading session, positioning it as the second most valuable company in the U.S. and the second-largest holding in the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY).

The chipmaker’s shares have climbed over 6% this week, driven by the sustained demand for AI chips. CEO Jensen Huang’s recent announcements about future product releases have further bolstered the NVDA stock momentum. Nvidia plans to launch a high-powered version of its Blackwell chip, dubbed Blackwell Ultra, in 2025. In addition, the company will release a new AI chip platform, Rubin, in 2026. 

Nvidia is also gaining increased attention as it approaches its upcoming 10-for-1 stock split, scheduled to occur after the market closes on Friday. This stock split will make Nvidia shares more accessible to a broader range of investors, potentially driving further interest and investment. Nvidia’s stock has soared nearly 150% year-to-date, following a more than threefold increase in 2023.
