Nvidia Corp. (NASDAQ:NVDA) is poised to make significant after-hours market capitalization gains, potentially reaching a valuation of $1 trillion. Following an optimistic revenue forecast by company executives, Nvidia stock surged over 25% in extended trading. This surge comes as tech companies seek to capitalize on advancements in artificial intelligence, largely driven by Nvidia’s computing technology.

At the close of Wednesday’s session, Nvidia had a market cap of approximately $754.3 billion. A 25% increase would add nearly $189 billion, bringing the company closer to the trillion-dollar mark. Currently, only six U.S. companies have achieved a $1 trillion valuation, including Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet, Amazon, Meta Platforms, and Tesla.

Notably, Nvidia’s (NASDAQ:NVDA) market cap surpassed that of Meta (NASDAQ:META) and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). However, the volatile nature of such valuations should be acknowledged. Nvidia’s previous record market cap was $834.4 billion, set on November 29, 2021.

If Nvidia’s gains hold during Thursday’s trading session, the company could potentially challenge the record for the largest one-day market cap gain in history. The current record is held by Amazon, followed closely by Apple. Moreover, Nvidia’s market cap could surpass the total value of rival Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), which ended Wednesday with a market cap of $174.4 billion.

Nvidia’s progress toward the elusive $1 trillion milestone is fueled by substantial stock gains this year, as the tech sector experiences a surge in expectations and excitement surrounding generative AI. The introduction of OpenAI’s ChatGPT AI, swiftly integrated by Microsoft, has further amplified the anticipation for this technology.

While many companies have refrained from providing specific revenue projections related to AI, Nvidia’s fiscal second-quarter forecast indicates potential significant spending within the tech sector. The company expects sales of approximately $11 billion, nearly 33% higher than its previous quarterly record of $8.28 billion. This forecast could signify the beginning of a wave of increased investment in the tech industry.

It is common for hardware manufacturers to experience gains before companies utilizing their technology can develop offerings to leverage it fully. As a result, other hardware manufacturers such as AMD, Marvell Technology (NASDAQ:MRVL), and Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) also witnessed notable increases in after-hours trading.

In addition to Nvidia’s surge, Alphabet and Microsoft saw modest gains in after-hours trading. Software companies that have integrated AI into their offerings, such as Palantir Technologies and C3.ai, also experienced significant stock increases.
