Nvidia bets $25 bln that AI boom is far from over

Nvidia’s CEO, Jensen Huang, expressed his belief that the artificial intelligence (AI) boom will continue into next year. To support this optimism, the company announced a significant investment in the tech sector. Nvidia’s sales forecast exceeded expectations, and they also revealed plans to repurchase $25 billion of their shares. Despite the stock price already tripling this year, it was expected to reach an all-time high following these results.

Addressing doubts about the longevity of the AI craze, Nvidia confirmed their intention to increase hardware production into the next year. They currently dominate the market for computing systems used in AI applications, such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT. Huang assured investors that the company has excellent visibility and is already planning the next generation of infrastructure with leading cloud computing firms and data center builders.

In an interview, Huang explained that the demand for Nvidia’s chips is driven by two fundamental trends: the shift from traditional data centers to those built around their powerful chips, and the increasing use of AI-generated content in various industries. He emphasized that this fundamental shift is not a temporary phenomenon but rather a long-term trend.

Nvidia’s decision to repurchase stock at a time when it is more expensive than ever demonstrates their confidence in the future of AI. Other tech giants, such as Microsoft, Meta Platforms, and Amazon’s AWS, have also made significant investments in AI-related hardware and products.

The demand for Nvidia’s chips has provided the company with substantial cash flow. In the second quarter, their adjusted gross margins nearly doubled to 71.2%, surpassing the industry average. Analysts predict that demand will continue to outstrip supply, leading to higher revenue for Nvidia.

However, some analysts caution that the current spending on Nvidia GPUs by tech companies may not result in immediate profitability. They suggest that companies are investing heavily in GPUs to avoid missing out on potential opportunities, but the true use cases and profitability of these investments are yet to be determined.

Huang acknowledged that securing supplies is the biggest risk Nvidia faces. The company’s biggest sales driver this quarter was the HGX system, a complex computer built around Nvidia’s chip. Any missing component can cause delays in shipments. Huang expressed gratitude for the cooperation of their supply chain but emphasized the complexity of the GPU system.

In conclusion, Nvidia’s CEO is confident that the AI boom will continue beyond next year. The company’s strong sales forecast, stock repurchase plan, and dominance in the AI computing market support this optimism. However, analysts caution that the profitability of current investments in Nvidia GPUs is uncertain. The biggest challenge for Nvidia lies in securing supplies for their complex GPU systems.
