S&P and Nasdaq Hit New Highs, Nvidia Tops Market Cap


S&P and Nasdaq Hit New Highs, Nvidia Tops Global Market Cap

US stocks closed slightly higher on Tuesday, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq reaching new record highs. The AI boom propelled Nvidia to surpass Microsoft, making it the world’s most valuable company.

US May retail sales growth fell short of expectations. Investors are closely monitoring statements from several Federal Reserve officials this week, especially those related to monetary policy.

Nvidia’s surge continued, securing its position as the largest company by market capitalization in the US. The ongoing AI craze has driven Nvidia’s stock to new heights, overtaking other tech giants and making it the world’s most valuable company.

Despite the major US indices setting new highs, JPMorgan’s Chief Global Market Strategist, Marko Kolanovic, maintains a bearish outlook. However, he presented a “potentially positive” scenario that could prevent his negative forecast from becoming reality.
