Four years ago, American citizens received $1,200 stimulus checks from the government to help them recover from the financial losses caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

These stimulus checks, officially known as Economic Impact Payments, were issued by the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The first round of payments amounted to $1,200 for each individual and $500 for each child.

Investing in Nvidia

As the first stimulus checks were paid out in March 2020, those savvy traders who chose to invest $1,200 in Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) stock would be able to buy NVDA shares at a price of $60 each, meaning that the tech behemoth still didn’t experience gains of 3,100% due to the AI revolution.

Considering the impressive gains since the first stimulus check, the investment in NVDA stock would now be worth $23,280, pocketing investors a substantial return on the initial purchase.
