NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) - No industry sums up the volatility of the tech sector more than the semiconductor industry. Nvidia’s stock saw a nearly three-year surge that saw it rise nearly 800% come crashing down at the end of 2018. However, the stock is bouncing back. Shares of NVDA are up nearly 22% for the year and just over 12% since March 8. Some of the reason for the stock’s slump was due to the cryptocurrency meltdown, but the extent of the stock’s crash showed a fundamental misunderstanding of the company’s product offerings. The graphic processors that the company designs, while essential for crypto-miners, are far more in demand for video games and datacenters – which include applications for artificial intelligence (AI). Currently, AI applications account for about 25% of Nvidia’s business. That’s where the news gets particularly enticing for investors. At the GTC 2019 conference on March 18, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang announced the company’s partnership with Toyota Motors. In a nutshell, Nvidia through its DRIVE Constellation simulator is going to provide the technology that will allow Toyota to create virtual simulations which can lead to a rapid acceleration of the company’s testing capabilities while helping to cut costs, increase safety and improve efficiency.
