On March 12th, investors will have the opportunity to sell their shares in Softbank-owned company Arm Holdings. This news has led to speculation on Wall Street about whether Arm is a new hot stock or if investors were blinded by the hype surrounding artificial intelligence.
Arm Holdings has had an impressive run since being issued less than six months ago. Its share price jumped 125% in that time, reaching a value of around 118 billion dollars. The recent increase was attributed to positive reports and strong forecasts for the future due to high demand from the field of artificial intelligence.
However, some analysts are concerned that the sharp jump in Arm’s share price last weekend, which amounted to 50% in two days, could be a sign of pessimism about the company’s future prospects. They note that current pricing is one of the highest in the market, leading to debates about its attractiveness as an investment compared to other companies in the industry. The recent sharp increase in stock was attributed to a short squeeze, which increased its value and impacted the market.
Despite these concerns, Arm remains a leading player in the chip world, with architecture used by nearly all companies in the industry. Its chips are used in various fields such as cellular networks, vehicles, IoT devices and data centers making it an important player in technology industry. Softbank owns about 90% of arm shares and benefits from its success but this ownership may cloud its future prospects and any increase
