Investors Bought This Hyper-Growth Artificial Intelligence (AI) Stock Hand Over Fist in 2023. Will It Split Its Shares in 2024?

It would be difficult to not mention Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) when recapping the stock market’s 2023. The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and Nvidia’s triple-digit surge are arguably among 2023’s leading headlines.

In other words, Nvidia’s fundamentals seem destined to carry the stock higher over the coming years, and that makes me think a Nvidia stock split is a matter of when and not if.

But here’s the secret about stock splits

Investors must understand what stock splits do and don’t do. Splits reduce the trading price of a share of stock. This makes it cheaper to own a piece of that business, but a split doesn’t fundamentally affect a stock’s value. It creates a lower share price by splitting the stock into more pieces (shares).

For example, suppose you want some pie. You go to the store and see a pie worth $40 selling as…
