Arm Holdings (Nasdaq: ARM)
Arm Holdings is up 25.10% in premarket trading due to strong forecasts linked to the AI-driven demand for new chip designs. This demand is expected to increase royalties for Arm, a key player in chip blueprint sales. The company’s success in the AI sector is propelling it towards adding nearly $20 billion in market value. Arm’s innovative approaches in processors for AI work in data centers, alongside new laptops and smartphones capable of handling AI features, are significant factors in this growth.
Artificial Intelligence continues to change the world as companies and countries try to get as much of their hands on this new tech as possible.
