SMCI stock ended 2023 at 284.26. But things went south after the company significantly raised its sales and earnings expectations for the December quarter on January 18. It saw strong demand for its data centers and AI systems.

Super Micro stock continued to rise after its Jan. 29 earnings report. It rose to an all-time high of 1,229 on March 8. But it pulled out after news of a dilutive share offering.

On Tuesday, SMCI stock rose 10.6% to close at 976.30. That was after Loop Capital reiterated its buy rating on Super Micro and raised its price target from 600 to 1,500.
