2 Top Artificial Intelligence (AI) Stocks to Buy Following Nvidia’s Blockbuster Earnings

Artificial intelligence (AI) pioneer Nvidia delivered an outstanding quarterly report that crushed Wall Street’s expectations, sending shares of the chipmaker soaring as it became clear that AI is going to remain a big growth driver for the company. However, Nvidia wasn’t the only semiconductor stock that benefited from its impressive showing.

Shares of Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM), popularly known as TSMC, also enjoyed a bounce following Nvidia’s report. Let’s see why that was the case and check why it could be worth buying these two names right away.

Even better, Nvidia is expected to ship between 1.5 million and 2 million GB200 Superchips next year, which should pave the way for terrific growth at TSMC. The initial production ramp-up of Nvidia’s new chips seems to be driving solid growth for TSMC already, as its revenue for April shot up nearly 60% year…
