Chip stocks are on the rise Thursday and investors are wondering what news is behind this sector’s gains.

First off, we have Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) releasing its latest earnings report. The company did well in the quarter with a specific call out to an increasing interest in artificial intelligence (AI). This comes as ChatGPT continues to rise in popularity and causes more companies to take AI offerings seriously.

Following that, President Joe Biden’s administration revealed its plans to bolster the semiconductor sector in the U.S. The administration has set aside $50 billion as part of this plan. Some of its efforts include the creation of two semiconductor research and development hubs in the country.
