After Nvidia’s Stock Split and 150% First-Half Gain, Will It Soar in the Second Half? Here’s What History Says.

Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) has probably been the most watched stock on the planet over the past several months.

So, the operation hasn’t changed anything fundamental about the particular company or stock.

But the split accomplishes one major thing: It opens the investment opportunity up to a broader range of investors. This is positive for you and me because it makes it easier for…
