NVIDIA Ups the Ante with a Daring New Stock Split Strategy

Daniel Kim Views  

NVIDIA, an American semiconductor company, has announced a surprising performance for seven consecutive quarters and pulled out its stock split card for the first time in three years.

This is the sixth time NVIDIA has split its stock, and it is much more daring than the previous five times. The stock price is at an all-time high, and favorable news adds to the momentum, raising expectations for future stock price movements.

NVIDIA announced its first quarter earnings on the 22nd, local time. Pictured is Jensen Huang, CEO of NVIDIA.

On the 22nd, NVIDIA announced a 10-to-1 liquidation plan that divides the existing one share into ten shares, along with the first quarter earnings report.

Initially, market expectations for a stock split grew after NVIDIA’s stock price exceeded $900. The stock split plan was announced during this earnings conference call on June 10.

NVIDIA’s stock price surpassed its all-time high recorded at the end of March ahead of the first quarter earnings report. It recorded $953.86 on the 21st and exceeded $1,000 after hours on the 22nd, reaching $1,007.

As a result, if a 10-for-1 stock split occurs at the current stock price level, the price per share will fall to the $100 range.

A stock split increases the number of shares and reduces the stock price. It does not affect the intrinsic corporate value but makes the stock more accessible to investors.

As the number of shares in the market increases, investors who could not trade due to the high price might be attracted, which is typically viewed as positive news for the stock price. The effect is more significant for companies recognized for growth or with excellent fundamentals.

In particular, there are expectations that the stock split could significantly impact stock prices, as it has become more daring in scale compared to the previous five times.

NVIDIA has previously conducted five stock splits.

In 2000, 2001, and 2006, it split 2-for-1, and in 2007, it split 3-for-2. The most recent split in 2021 was 4-for-1, but this time, it significantly increased its size.

In the most recent instance in 2021, NVIDIA’s stock price surged about 30% in the days following the stock split announcement.

Google, Amazon.com, Inc., and Walmart Inc., which have conducted stock splits in the past 1-2 years, have also shown a trend of rising stock prices after the stock split announcement.

Analysts say NVIDIA has expressed confidence in its future growth by increasing the dividend by 150% following a high-multiple stock split. NVIDIA also raised its second-quarter earnings forecast above market expectations on the same day.

The stock market expects additional demand to flow in by early June, the date of the extra stock allocation.

Han Ji Young, a researcher at Kiwoom Securities, predicted, “If you hold the stock until June 6 due to the decision to split the face value, you can receive nine additional shares of common stock after the market closes on the 7th” and “The stock price is expected to continue to rise as there is demand for additional purchases at least until the beginning of the month.”

If NVIDIA’s stock price rise gains momentum, it could surpass the current global market capitalization leaders, Microsoft Corporation ($3.199 trillion) and Apple Inc. ($2.927 trillion).

As of the closing price on the day, NVIDIA’s market capitalization was $2.335 trillion, leaving about 30% to reach Apple Inc.’s market cap. Reporter Jung Hee-kyung.
