Nvidia briefly surpassed $2 trillion in market cap during intraday trading Friday as its stock continues to rally following the company’s rosy earnings report Wednesday.

Shares of Nvidia rose more than 2% Friday morning after closing up 16% Thursday.

Nvidia posted $22.10 billion in revenue for its fiscal fourth quarter, a 265% increase from a year ago and above the $20.62 billion expected by analysts polled by LSEG, formerly known as Refinitiv. Nvidia reported $12.29 billion in net income during the quarter, up a staggering 769% from $1.41 billion last year.

The company has benefitted from the tech sector’s insatiable demand for artificial intelligence capabilities over the last year. Nvidia makes the pricey graphics processors for the servers that power large AI models.
