Nvidia Corp was on track on Tuesday to breach $1 trillion in market capitalization for the first time, making it the first US chipmaker to join the trillion-dollar club.
The company's shares were last up 3.8% at $404.17 in premarket trading.
Meta, valued at about $670 billion as of last close, clinched the trillion-dollar market capitalization milestone in 2021, while Apple Inc, Alphabet Inc, Microsoft Corp and Amazon.com Inc are the other US companies that are part of the club.
AI took center stage after Nvidia stunned investors with a revenue forecast that surpassed analysts' expectations by more than 50%.
The Philadelphia SE Semiconductor index closed at its highest in over a year last week after Nvidia's stellar results powered other chipmakers higher.
