VanEck Semiconductor ETF closes at a record as Nvidia pops

The closely watched VanEck Semiconductor ETF (SMH) leapt more than 2% on Monday to close at a record high of 235.00.

The ETF got a boost from Nvidia, which jumped about 2.5% as Wall Street anticipated the chip giant’s upcoming earnings report on Wednesday afternoon.

Ahead of the results, Baird reiterated its buy rating on the stock and raised its price target to $1,200 from $1,050. Meanwhile, tech investor Dan Niles said Nvidia is cheap heading into earnings.

It was also a solid day for fellow SMH constituents Broadcom, up 1.3%, and Qualcomm, which posted a 2% gain. Micron Technology ended Monday with a nearly 3% advance.
