Artificial intelligence (AI) can and will do a lot of things…
I expect it to revolutionize medicine.
Instead of scientists searching for years for a molecule that may treat a disease and then spending many more years and hundreds of millions of dollars to figure out whether it works, AI can take every piece of knowledge about that disease and come up with likely drug candidates, drastically reducing the drug development time frame.
And AI can answer more questions than Google because it allows you to ask follow-up questions or modify your requests.
When I describe to my kids what life was like before the internet, I’m pretty sure they picture it in black and white and everything moving at a snail’s pace. I suspect 20 years from now it will be the same when we talk about the pre-AI era.
I believe AI will be like the internet revolution but bigger. So that leaves investors dying to know the answers to two questions…
1. Which AI stocks should I buy?
Many investors are looking for that tiny company that is going to become the next Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT).
They may be out there, but it is still very early in the game. Remember how many internet companies there were that died? Netcentives, theGlobe.com, eToys and – of course – the infamous Pets.com…
Here’s my advice. Instead of searching for the next Microsoft, choose Microsoft. The tech giant is already devoting lots of resources to AI, including a 49% stake in ChatGPT, and not many companies have more resources than Microsoft.
Other tech giants, like Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN), Meta Platforms (Nasdaq: META) and Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO), will likely keep their commanding leads. Nvidia (Nasdaq: NVDA) is already one of the big winners, and while it will face competition, it has a lead over other chipmakers in the AI space.
Go with what you already know and who is already a dominant player.
But there’s a second question I’ve been seeing from readers…
2. How can I use AI to improve my investing returns?
Undoubtedly, AI will also find patterns in asset price movements that may not be able to be picked up by a chart or even a current algorithm, giving an advantage to investors who have access to that technology.
That’s why, last week, Chief Investment Strategist Alexander Green and I sat down with TradeSmith CEO Keith Kaplan for The Predictive AI Profits Event.
As Keith explained, AI is no longer just for the Wall Street elite…
In fact, TradeSmith, which is one of The Oxford Club’s trusted Pillar One Advisors, has spent more than $18 million and over 50,000 man-hours developing market analysis algorithms that can help investors like you and me trade with an AI edge.
Investing is one area in which I expect AI to have a profound impact.
