Nvidia stock price

Nvidia

After struggling for days, Nvidia ($NVDA) shares broke higher, rising above $192. The stock had been met with a lot of resistance at that level, but the Bulls were relentless. Watching the will of the Bulls in Nvidia is something that I have not often observed in my career, it reminds me of the Microsoft, Intel days of the 1990’s and Apple in the late 2000’s. Every time, one would think the stock is due to correct, the Bulls just keep buying. Either Nvidia is one of the next great companies, or its valuation is being stretched on hope. Time will ultimately tell us which was the correct view, but the company will be reporting in the next couple of weeks, which should be a telling sign as the y/y comps now start to become much harder.

I now know how the bears in Tesla must feel. As much I have gotten Tesla right, I have gotten Nvidia wrong. Which makes me realize that perhaps I have missed something. I shall have to go back and reassess my views on Nvidia

Amazon

Amazon broke out above $1,000 once again, and going into its quarterly report; one has to think that momentum will keep to the upside, with a likely run to $1,100 in the works.

Amazon

Alphabet

Has made an all-time and we can see on the chart, that old high has now become support.

Alphabet google

Micron
