Nvidia Stock Shows Strength Despite CHIP Law Favoring Intel: What to Watch

Nvidia Corporation NVDA opened slightly lower on Wednesday but started rising intraday. The move continues a bullish trading session on Tuesday that saw the chipmaker rebound more than 5%.

Although the global semiconductor shortage, which took many chipmakers to all-time highs last year, is far from over, Nvidia and other companies like Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD who manufacture chips through third parties should not benefit from the CHIPS Act, which cleared its first hurdle on Tuesday.

While Nvidia and AMD design chips in-house, they rely on foreign companies to produce the technology, such as Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg. Co.Ltd TSM. The CHIPS Act, which aims to benefit domestic semiconductor manufacturers by providing benefits such as tax incentives, strongly favors companies such as intel company INTC but could eventually force companies like Nvidia to find ways to bring manufacturing operations to the US

Despite the news, Nvidia fared more bullish than Intel on Wednesday, as the former continued its uptrend northward. For comparison, Nvidia is up 23% over the past 12 trading days, while Intel is up 12% over the same period.
