Nvidia overtook Google-parent Alphabet to become the third most valuable US company on Wednesday, ahead of the AI chipmaker’s upcoming quarterly.

Nvidia share price rose 2.46% with its market capitalization surging to $1.825 trillion, while Alphabet stock price rose 0.55%, leaving it with a value of $1.821 trillion.

Customers face shortages of Nvidia's top-of-the-line components while AI developers face months-long waiting lists to use its processors through cloud-computing providers, Reuters reported.

Technology-related companies, including Microsoft and Meta Platforms, have also rallied to record highs on AI optimism.

Nvidia is set to report its quarterly earnings next Wednesday and analysts expect another blowout quarter and outlook from the company.

Nvidia's January fiscal quarter revenue is expected to more than triple to $20.37 billion, fueled by demand for its top-shelf AI chips, as per average analysts estimates. Adjusted net profit is seen surging over 400% to $11.38 billion.

Meanwhile, Microsoft, now valued at over $3 trillion, overtook Apple in January to become the world’s most valuable company. Saudi Aramco is the world’s third most valuable publicly-listed company, according to LSEG.
