| NVIDIA has utilized its GPU architecture to create platforms for scientific computing, artificial intelligence (AI), data science, autonomous vehicles, robotics, and augmented and virtual reality. Co. has two segments: Graphics, which includes GeForce GPUs for gaming and PCs, the GeForce NOW game streaming service and related infrastructure, and solutions for gaming platforms, and Quadro/NVIDIA RTX GPUs for enterprise workstation graphics; and Compute and Networking, which includes Data Center platforms and systems for AI, high-performance computing, and accelerated computing, Mellanox networking and interconnect solutions, and cryptocurrency mining processors. The NVDA YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the NVDA YTD return page and across the coverage universe of our site,
is a measure of the total return for a given investment year-to-date for the current calendar year
(up to the end of prior trading session). Arguably, choosing the current calendar year for a measurement
period is on the one hand completely arbitrary, but on the other hand a year-to-date look can be extremely
useful in the context of our country's tax system which taxes gains and income on a calendar year basis.
Thus, researching Year-To-Date Returns is good practice for investors — whether NVDA YTD return or other benchmarks/peers
— and when doing so it is also important to factor in dividends, because a financial instrument's YTD return is
more than just the change in price if that instrument pays a dividend or coupon. Our website aims to empower investors
by performing the NVDA YTD return calculation (with any dividends reinvested as applicable), and to provide a
coverage universe of many stocks and ETFs to be able to compare YTD returns.
