Nvidia homeruns again. As far as driving market sentiment, used to be Apple but there’s a new boss in town.

Their market cap in just a few years.


January, 2020: $144 billion
Today: $2.34 trillion

And just think where’d they be if we didn’t have sanctions on China.

Would be very good stock wise but China would then copy-and-cheat on the IP so it cuts both ways.

State-sponsored monopolies are bad for consumers but understand if you own a lot of NVIDIA stock or on their board.

There are many valid reasons to protect a company, industry etc. (i.e IP theft, unfair trade practices etc.)

Only don’t complain if another country does it too.

And then it gets to who started it first. Like Israeli-Hamas war

I mean, the Chinese state literally gives IP from non-Chinese companies to Chinese companies. When I worked in medical device, this was part of the conversation when deciding whether or not to bring a particular product to market.

Like many countries, China requires that detailed specifications for medical devices be submitted as part of the approval process. Within a year or two, you see a duplicate device being produced by a local company.

The most common way around this is to do a joint venture with a Chinese company who can pay off the right people so that your IP isn't sold on to other in-country competitors.

We never had this problem in other countries, including Brazil, India, Argentina, etc....

TBF the US practices protectionism in different ways, just not as blatantly as Chinas state sponsored theft.

The willingness of our key companies to compromise their IP (Tesla) is same old story like back in the 00s (Oracle offshore development). Good that now many companies aren’t that willing to compromise and the US government (Trump & Joe) have constrained their offering up key IP nowadays.

In other news, Nvidia continues to delight! I am hoping they join the $3T club this year.

And in other news (and 2 weeks later) Nvidia is a $3T company … with no signs of slowing down. I am getting nervous though. The run up to Nov or Xi escalating on Taiwan messing up this beautiful year.

Last day to buy NVDA before their 10-for-1 split.

Theoretically, it should be a neutral effect. But there's been alot of retail consumer interest and some guess more regular Joes will buy at $120 vs $1200. So bought some more today.

You heard it here first (but don't blame me if it goes down).

Markets up. NVDA up after their split.

Apple down with their big WWDC24 opening day. More big news about iOS new functionality that is really just "meh". Potentially big news with Apple launching Vision Pro outside of US, maybe others can create killer apps/games. I do like the new branding for "Apple Intelligence", I can see that catching on.

Looking forward to Wed CPI and Jerome's decision.

Looks like the markets liked the data.

Yes, but Jerome will be speaking soon. And the market always seems to go negative when he speaks ... or at least initially, before rebounding.

The Big-7 tech stocks seem unstoppable. They've found a new catalyst with all things AI.

Thank you Mercury for Nasdaq, Nvidia, Broadcom etc. Nice 3% gain this past week.

I was looking up what God to pray to for the markets. Apparently, it is Mercury
