S&P 500 To Include Supermicro Computer

The company’s stock has outperformed even Nvidia, with its market value reaching $60 billion, up from $5 billion before the launch of ChatGPT.

Supermicro Computer is set to join the S&P 500. The S&P 500, or the Standard & Poor’s 500, is a stock market index that is considered a benchmark for the overall performance of the U.S. stock market. 

Supermicro Computers has a unique advantage among server makers in the generative AI boom due to its close ties with Nvidia. The company has historically been among the first to receive AI chips from Nvidia and AMD, allowing it to launch products faster than rivals Dell and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. This has helped Super Micro become a key supplier of servers for generative AI apps, leading to a 289% increase in its shares this year.

Supermicro’s quick-to-market model and proximity to Nvidia and AMD’s headquarters have contributed to its success. Its revenue more than doubled in the last quarter of 2023, and analysts expect triple-digit percentage growth to continue until at least the September quarter of 2024. The company’s share of the AI server market is estimated to grow from 10% in 2023 to about 17% in 2026.

The company’s stock has outperformed even Nvidia, with its market value reaching $60 billion, up from $5 billion before the launch of ChatGPT in November 2022. Supermicro’s price-to-earnings ratio has increased significantly, raising the risk of a selloff if it fails to meet future earnings expectations.

Supermicro is also benefiting from the demand for liquid cooling technology, as AI chips generate more heat. The company’s in-house developed tech involves putting cold liquid over a plate placed on top of a chip, reducing power consumption by about 40% compared to air cooling. Liquid cooling is projected to become the dominant method for cooling servers by 2030.

Analysts caution that it could be challenging for Supermicro to maintain its advantage in AI servers as larger rivals shift focus to the market and the company has been offering its products at cheaper rates to gain market share.
