Markets are closed today for Juneteenth, so we’re looking at charts in place of our usual Mid-Week Market Review.

Today’s charts provide a compelling visual narrative of the interplay between industry demand for computers and electronic products and the market performance of NVIDIA, a leading player in the tech industry.

Chart 1: Manufacturers’ New Orders for Computers and Electronic Products

The first chart presents a timeline of new orders for computers and electronic products from June 2019 to the present. Here’s a breakdown of the key trends:

  1. Early Fluctuations: From mid-2019 to mid-2020, there was a decline in new orders, likely due to the initial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which disrupted global supply chains and reduced consumer and enterprise spending.
  2. Post-Pandemic Recovery: Starting in the latter half of 2020, there’s a significant recovery. This period coincides with the surge in remote work and digital transformation initiatives, leading to increased demand for computers and electronics.
  3. Steady Growth: From early 2021 onwards, we see a consistent rise in new orders, reflecting ongoing investment in technology and infrastructure. This growth mirrors the broader economic recovery and an accelerated shift towards digital solutions.

Chart 2: NVIDIA Corporation Stock Performance

The second chart tracks the stock performance of NVIDIA from October 2019 to June 2024. Key observations include:

  1. Stable Growth Pre-Pandemic: Before the pandemic, NVIDIA’s stock showed steady growth, supported by strong fundamentals and demand for its graphics processing units (GPUs).
  2. Pandemic-Driven Surge: From mid-2020 onwards, there’s a dramatic rise in NVIDIA’s stock price. This period marks a turning point, driven by increased demand for GPUs, critical for remote work, gaming, and AI applications.
  3. Exponential Rise in 2023-2024: The most striking feature is the steep increase in NVIDIA’s stock price from late 2022 through mid-2024. This reflects NVIDIA’s strategic positioning in the AI market, where its GPUs are essential for machine learning, data centers, and other AI-driven applications.

The correlation between these two charts is clear: the rising demand for AI technologies is driving both NVIDIA’s stock price and new orders for electronic and computer products. Here’s how they connect:

  • AI as a Growth Catalyst: NVIDIA’s sharp stock price increase is directly tied to its leadership in AI technology. As AI adoption accelerates across industries, the demand for high-performance GPUs, which are crucial for AI computations, has skyrocketed. This surge in demand is reflected in NVIDIA’s financial performance.
  • Increased Electronic Orders: The boost in manufacturers’ new orders for computers and electronic products underscores the broader market’s response to AI-driven needs. Companies are investing heavily in new technology infrastructure to support AI initiatives, leading to increased orders for components and systems that NVIDIA helps power.
  • Market Dynamics: The exponential growth in NVIDIA’s stock price from 2023 to 2024 highlights how pivotal AI has become. As businesses and industries integrate AI to enhance efficiency, innovation, and competitiveness, the ripple effect is seen in the rising demand for related electronic products.

These charts together tell a compelling story of how the AI revolution is reshaping the tech industry. NVIDIA’s remarkable stock performance underscores its central role in this transformation, driven by the growing need for AI capabilities. Simultaneously, the rise in new orders for computers and electronic products reflects the broader market’s investment in AI infrastructure. Understanding this correlation provides valuable insights into the future of technology and investment opportunities in the AI-driven market landscape.
