Nvidia (NVDA) has delivered impressive first-quarter financial results, beating analyst expectations and demonstrating robust growth across its top and bottom lines.

Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia, expressed enthusiasm about the company’s position at the forefront of the next industrial revolution. He said,

“The next industrial revolution has begun — companies and countries are partnering with NVIDIA to shift the trillion-dollar traditional data centers to accelerated computing and build a new type of data center — AI factories — to produce a new commodity: artificial intelligence.”

Huang elaborated on the transformative impact of AI across industries, emphasizing its potential to enhance productivity, cost efficiency, and revenue generation.

Adding to the positive news, Nvidia announced a significant corporate action—a 10-for-1 forward stock split, effective June 7. This strategic move aims to enhance liquidity and accessibility for investors, reflecting Nvidia’s confidence in its long-term growth prospects.
