U.S. Stocks Close Higher, NVIDIA Overtakes Google In Market Value 


U.S. Stocks Close Higher, NVIDIA Overtakes Google In Market Value 

U.S. stocks closed higher on Wednesday, with major indices partially recovering from the significant losses suffered in the previous trading session.  

NVIDIA briefly surpassed Google to become the third-largest company by market capitalization in the U.S.  

Investors are closely monitoring U.S. earnings reports, the Federal Reserve’s interest rate policy outlook, and awaiting the latest inflation data including retail sales and PPI. 

Following the release of better-than-expected CPI data, traders assessed that the probability of a Fed rate cut in May decreased from around 64% before the inflation data to approximately 32%, and anticipate three rate cuts this year totaling around 75 basis points. 

Terry Sandven, Chief Equity Strategist at Bank of America Wealth Management, stated that despite the January CPI report potentially pushing back the Fed’s first rate cut from the initial expectation of March to the second half of 2024, the upward trend in U.S. stocks has not yet ended.
