Nvidia (NVDA) isn’t a household name for many people, but that doesn’t mean the company hasn’t has a massive impact on the daily lives of billions of people around the world. Nvidia’s founders invented what is known as the graphics processing unit (GPU), creating the company in 1993, and today it creates interactive graphics on laptops, workstations, mobile devices, notebooks, PCs, and more. It is active in the video gaming market and develops advanced graphic processing products for both commercial and wholesale usage.

Nvidia’s business is broken down into 4 silos: gaming, professional visualization, data centers and automotive. The company is now also working on technologies including parallel processing, artificial intelligence, mobile computing and more.

In 2018, NVDA’s revenue was $11.72 billion and it’s market cap as of 2019 is $129 billion.

Rationale

All that said, there are reasons for investors to think twice about investing directly in NVDA. The most direct way to gain exposure to Nvidia is to buy its listed shares, of course, but its participation in the extremely competitive computer hardware market might make many reconsider that approach. Companies like NVDA must constantly innovate and find new ways to drive revenue as both technologies and consumer needs change and evolve. What’s more, new applications for GPUs, such as for cryptocurrency mining, are rapidly expanding Nvidia’s potential market and opening it up to new competition that’s more focused on those opportunities.

However, for investors interested in gaining exposure to the computing hardware sector, rather than buying NVDA shares themselves should consider buying funds that provide exposure to Nvidia and other similar firms. After all, the return drivers that will benefit NVDA might also benefit other similar tech firms. As investment management is gradually moving to the construction of portfolios using ETFs and mutual funds in addition to single stocks, investors would do well to consider gain exposure to firms like Nvidia through these types of funds.
