Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) stock is in the news Thursday after Evercore warned its clients that the tech company’s shares are no longer a “linchpin” for the S&P 500.

Evercore points to the performance of the S&P 500 following Nvidia’s Q1 earnings report earlier this week. While Nvidia stock underwent a massive rally on strong Q1 results, the S&P 500 didn’t move in sympathy with the shares.

Evercore argues that this could mean that Nvidia doesn’t carry the weight needed to move the S&P 500. It could also be a sign that a correction is coming soon. This could happen alongside other catalysts, such as the Trump trial verdict, the core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) inflation report, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) report or the upcoming NVDA stock split.

Here’s what Evercore analysts said about this in a note to clients obtained by StreetInsider.

“While there have been several instances of ‘important’ stocks such as Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL), Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) or NVDA rising 20% in 3 days, either the shares were not yet a top 5 weight stock in the S&P 500 or those rallies moved the S&P 500 higher in tandem.”
