Q: Hi,

One of the larger holdings in my portfolio is NVDA ~5%. I trimmed some NVDA last week and bought some VRT ~1%. Thinking of buying some SMCI as well. Do you think owning all three would be too correlated or would it be okay? Thinking of adding ~1% position to SMCI (seems to have settled down a bit here). If it were you, in what % would you allocate to each of the three names?

Also long AXON (nice results yesterday). Would like to add more but looks pricey at 68x p/e and 11x p/s. Thoughts?

Q: Hi Team,
Now that NVDA earnings have completely proved the markets “fear” going into the print completely wrong ; what’s your take on the stock going forward ? Continued momentum? Buy, trim , hold ? The way it looks to me comparing valuations and insane revenue growth rates NVDA might be on its way from #3 spot to eventually taking over both apple and Msft as largest company. Do you see this as correct? The crazy thing is AI is just getting started. Seems like a huge market for NVDA going forward with many countries that haven’t even touched the surface of getting started. I don’t want to sound overly bullish but looking at the future of the world dynamics with digitization of everything this seems to be the future . This being said ; there will be massive demand for data center infrastructure. What companies are the best to play this ? HPS.A seems like data center infrastructure will be a big area of growth for them . Your thoughts please , Thanks.

Q: Can you compare/contrast these two businesses for me? Does SMCI order NVDA chips and sell the entire integrated system with chips as well as the infrastructure without chips that customers can plug and play their own NVDA or other chips into? Is SMCI's technology more efficient for thermal management than VRT's? Their growth rates seemed comparable each quarter over the last year. I am wondering if VRT has a good chance to post a nice beat in their upcoming quarter as SMCI did. Thanks

Q: Is now a decent time to purchase VRT or should I wait for a potential pullback/consolidation? Are there other similar companies to VRT?

Q: Good Day,

Big wins on a lot of your recent answers to my previous questions, thanks.

Obviously there's a tonne of hype on the Semiconductor market/AI/Data Center space right now, and after picking up SMCI, VRT, etc, I came across CDNS and by proxy, SNPS as well.

It appears they have the market corners on the design software side of this market. Logically, however, this wouldn't appear to be a space that grows in the number of customers in it very readily.

Is this similar to ASMLs type of monopoly (albeit a duopoly), with growth coming from advantageous pricing conditions and the relative difficulty of a new player popping up?

Do you see these companies gaining significant share price appreciation over time? Which company is better and why? I really liked a recent question that asked where they were relative to a baseball game. For each could you relate their lifecycle to what inning in a game they are, as well as an out of 10 for risk and growth potential.

The prices of these have climbed for sure, but definitely don't seem to have exploded like the rest of the segment. Are there any other companies with this same type of competitive advantage in the semiconductor/AI space?
