nvidia share price: Nvidia sheds $200 billion in value after short run as top stock

Estimated read time 5 min read

Nvidia Corp.’s run as the world’s biggest company didn’t last long.

Shares of the semiconductor giant have tumbled on back-to-back days, dropping more than 7%, after rallying earlier in the week and pushing its valuation to $3.3 trillion, just above Microsoft Corp. and Apple Inc.

Traders said there weren’t any fundamental reasons behind the two-day selloff but it does, if nothing else, underscore the breakneck pace at which the stock had climbed — almost 200% in the past year alone — and how that ascent now makes it vulnerable to sudden retreats like this one.

Given the three megacaps have jockeyed all month for the pole position, Nvidia, of course, could reclaim the top spot soon enough after shedding more than $200 billion in market value in two days.

“Nothing has gone wrong at Nvidia, which reached the number one spot earlier this week,” said Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell. “It’s just the usual fluctuations in the stock market which, with such large companies, can wipe or add hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars to their market value.”

The drop also comes amid broader market retreat as options expire in a so-called triple-witching session. As the contracts disappear, investors will adjust their positions, adding a burst of volume capable of swinging individual holdings.
