Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) dominated the market this year with its AI chips. The stock is already up 205% year to date, compared to the  S&P 500’s 17% return during the same time, which makes everyone wonder — can Nvidia stock go higher?

Wall Street analysts believe it will. The demand for Nvidia’s AI chips is still strong, from Elon Musk and China to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, corporations and nations are looking to stock up amid the shortage to build large language models.

Demand for Nvidia’s chips is growing. China’s internet giants recently ordered $5 billion worth of Nvidia chips and graphics processing units (GPUs), which are to be delivered in 2024.

Elon Musk was also buying the chips for his generative AI project xAI. Musk said that “Twitter [now X] and Tesla are certainly buying GPUs”.

Saudi Arabia and UAE are buying thousands of Nvidia chips to join the AI race, pushing demand for new chips.

Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince said “a lot of constraint in getting” Nvidia’s H100 chips on a Q2 earnings call earlier this month.
