GOOGLE - Primary AI Tech Stock For Investing in 2020 and Beyond

Companies / Google Jan 04, 2020 - 06:21 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Companies

The juggernaut that is Artificial Intelligence continues to rumble along towards an inexorable future, one that most still fail to grasp the magnitude of the changes that are just around the corner as humans think in linear terms whilst the AI trend is EXPONENTIAL. Where developments that even the proponents of AI thought would take several years are taking place in mere MONTHS! That is the power of the unfolding AI MEGA-TREND!

AI has already CHANGED THE WORLD! EXPONENTIALLY! You have an AI super computer right in your pocket for likely less than £1000!


Especially, when one marries AI with other big world changing tech mega-trend "Quantum Computing"! Put the 2 together and we are literally going to see an explosion in SUPER INTELLGENCE that would soon far exceed that of human intelligence, following which it won't be that many years before the AI exceeds the intelligence of the sum of ALL humans! For better or worse, that's the path we are on.

And all those who say AI can be controlled are going to be proven wrong, as new technologies tend to be first sequestered towards military aims. So whilst we focus on the benefits of AI in reality AI is a POWERFUL WEAPON and so the world is in an AI arms race, commercial, economic and military AI arms race.

Here I a review the performance of my list of Top AI stocks, of how they performed during 2019 and current technical state going into 2020 that resolve in an updated list of buying levels of where the stocks 'could' trade down to during a correction for potential buying opportunities, which may prove opportune given that my opening 2020 expectations are for a correction in the general stock indices.

My list of AI stocks has more or less remained static for many years, with the likes of Google, Microsoft and Intel having been on the list for more than a decade! Though personally I only really started walking up to the developments in AI around 2014, as up until then I had remained skeptical of the hype that was AI given my experience from the late 1990's when I actually spent a good 6-9 months programming a neutral net given the hype in the media and movies at the time. But soon realised that there was a huge gap between AI reality and the media hype and so become skeptical of all things AI for the next 15 years or so. But gradually during the early 2010's there were signs of that which had been promised was taking it's first steps towards becoming reality. Where by 2016 I was fully converted to the emerging reality of the AI mega-trend, investigating AI stocks and making the following video to help spread the word.

So when I say investing, I mean INVESTING, and not to focus on intra year volatility which is only good for accumulating more exposure on dips.

The main thing where AI stocks are concerned is to HAVE EXPOSURE! Because without any exposure your not riding the AI train and so unless you are prepared to immerse yourself in AI, i.e. trundle along to the many AI platforms out there such as by Google. Microsoft or Elon Musk's OpenAI then your only real way to capitalise on the AI mega-trend is buy OWNING AI stocks.

This graph further illustrates the magnitude of the change currently under way, where just 2 primary AI stocks, Apple and Microsoft are now worth more than the entire German stock market!

INVESTING in AI

Investing means INVESTING. Which is definitely a different mind set to Trading. For instance whenever the AI stocks take a tumble then my instincts are to buy more! Though of course I do keep track of what's happening to effect each stock. For instance AMD's Ryzen and Threadripper processors have been giving Intel a run for their money for past 3 years. Where my initial expectations were that Intel would soon squash AMD like a bug by releasing it's next generation of powerful processors. But never happened! instead Intel has been losing ground and market share to AMD. Thus making me reluctant to add more to Intel holdings despite several opportunities.

AI Stocks 2019 Review and Buying Levels Q1 2020.

For primers on all of these stocks and how to invest in them then do check out my following earlier articles:

1. GOOGLE (Alphabet) - $GOOGL

I always refer to Alphabet as Google, and maybe one day they will change it's name back to Google.

Google Up 26% in 2019

Google has had a spectacular bull run 2019, where investors had several opportunities to accumulate at sub $1200, all the way down to sub $1050! In the real world in 2019 I told people to BUY GOOGLE, they typically reply was $1170 or so was too expensive. I repeat BUY GOOGLE! Nope it's too high. don't listen. So what's $1300?, $1350?, $1500? $2000?

The stock price rose 26% 2019. This just iterates the primacy of being PRIMARY, and GOOGLE is PRIMARY! Keep things simple folks! Start with Google. Investors who can't fathom buying Google at $1300 need to think what will they do when Google is trading at $13 million per share? For who wins the AI war will OWN the world! And all we mere mortals can hope to do is to ride on their coat tails by owning a tiny spec of AI monsters such as Google. In terms of a correction, downside appears limited to around $1280.
