After Nvidia joined the $1 trillion market club on Tuesday, Yahoo Finance spoke with experts, analysts, and strategists, who weighed in on the outlook for the company amid recent AI trends. Yahoo Finance's Brad Smith spoke on the fanfare around Nvidia (NVDA) and AI. Smith said, "I'm going to break this down in three quick letters, it's A M C. At the top, you've got the applications that are going to sit on top of the M, the language-learning models, and at the bottom of it you've got the chips and the data centers." KeyBanc Capital Markets Equity Research Analyst John Vinh discussed Nvidia's advanced software. Vinh said, "They've got millions of AI developers that are focused on the Nvidia ecosystem and it's really this software ecosystem that's going to give them a sustainable advantage for quite some time." Yahoo Finance's Dan Howley explained what he thinks gives Nvidia an edge. Howley said, "People are really talking about how to get their chips at this moment. We're not talking about small firms either. We're talking about the likes of Microsoft (MSFT), Google (GOOG, GOOGL), Meta (META) ... Nvidia really is riding this hype train, and they're the conductor." Annandale Capital Founder and Chairman George Seay discussed his thoughts on Nvidia and why investors should remain cautious on AI. Seay said, "Nvidia is going to be a big winner. And I think you've got to look at some of the others like Google and Amazon, some of the other beneficiaries of this movement, and basically spread your bets."
