Bij 3D Wars hebben ze eens gekeken naar de financiŽle positie van nVidia. In tegenstelling tot 3dfx gaat het aandeel nVidia errug lekker:
Nvidia is publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the symbol NVDA. Currently, Nvidia stock is being traded around the 37 Dollar per share mark. 37 Dollars is quite a bit for a graphics card company such as Nvidia. Well, needless to say, it hasn't always been this way. When Nvidia first went public in January of this year, their stock was being traded around 20 Dollars. That average is near the maximum amount that 3dfx's stock has ever been. Over the course of several months, it stayed the same. Yet, once Nvidia made the GeForce 256 GPU official, their stock took a major turn for the better. Booming up to about 35 dollars and rising, Nvidia's future began to look very good. However, as I stated in the previous Financial Update, stocks do not give an accurate depiction of a company's standing. Is there a difference in this case? Lets find out...
Although Nvidia would not comment on why their stock has been doing so well, it's pretty obvious to see. Even though it cannot be narrowed down to one reason alone, it has a big thing to do with timing. Nvidia has a product in the next generation line and 3dfx does not. Consumers want what is hot and they want it now, thus having a company that can provide for that will be a more affluent company. Easy enough...Nvidia is doing very well in this industry. However, this can't last forever...or can it?
