United States chipmaker Nvidia has outperformed Apple stock price by over 25-fold since the beginning of 2024, as its much-anticipated 10-to-1 stock split is about to start trading.

Nvidia (NVDA) shares rose over 150% since the beginning of 2024, while Apple (AAPL) shares only rose 6% year-to-date (YTD), according to Nasdaq data.

Nvidia has also been outperforming Apple shares in the short term. On the monthly chart, Nvidia’s price rose 34%, while Apple stock only rose slightly over 7%.

Nvidia is the world’s largest chip manufacturer. The rise of its valuation is driven by the increasing demand for semiconductor chips, mainly due to artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms.
