Meanwhile, shares of AI companies have risen rapidly thanks to massive interest in this breakthrough technology.

However, as this week's selloff suggests, most of those gains were more a result of sentiment and fears of missing out of the AI boom.

When stocks reach hundreds of percent gains, as they did for companies Nvidia a Supermicro...it may take little to dissipate some of the profits. That seems to have happened in this case as well. 💭

Analyst from Wells Fargo noted that Supermicro did not provide its usual preliminary earnings report, which may mean its quarterly results are not as strong as expected. However, sentiment in the AI space tends to move these stocks at the same time, so the share price drop in other companies is not surprising.

I'll be sure to keep an eye on the earnings report Supermicrothat will be released April 30 after the market closes, as it will confirm or deny yesterday's events.

I expect that after these reports are released, stocks focused on AI will move in tandem with Super Micro Computer.

What do you think of the overall boom around AI-focused companies 📊🔍?


You can see the drop there nicely, but as Christopher writes, those prices are still high.

It was coming down nicely towards the end of the week... :) But so far it's all very much up. If there were more weeks like this in a row now, I might even buy something.
