How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

Learn to Value Stocks Using the Earnings Growth Factor

InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest Mar 29, 2022 - 02:19 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

InvestorEducation

After the current panic passes I will revert to posting my primary AI stocks table as the main table for data, presently the table retains my original pre-panic buying levels as of 22nd November 2022 for comparison purposes with levels achieved in red against those that remain pending. Remember all of these levels once upon a time seemed far out of reach, who could have imagined Nvidia would fall from $336 to $236 over a couple of months! Google to $2625! Microsoft to $282, Intel to $48, okay I'll give you Intel, but many of the levels have now been achieved and then some!


Large version - https://www.marketoracle.co.uk/images/2022/Feb/NW-AI-Stocks-Port-Table-Big-5-2-22.jpg

Also note upgrades to the table in response to Patron feedback. I now include a column the shows my current exposure as a percentage of target for an explanation of what this exactly means see item 7 in my earlier analysis (HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY INVEST IN STOCKS During 2022 and Beyond). But basically it shows what I am focused on accumulating i.e. I am only 30% invested in Google of target exposure so I am eager to buy more Google stock. Whilst I am fully invested in Intel and Facebook.

Earnings Growth Factor

Another new column is the earnings growth factor. A useful little pocket knife indicator that I use that unlike the EC ratio anyone can calculate for themselves for any stock by following these steps -

1. Obtain stocks current PE ratio (last 4 EPS).

2. Divide share price by (current quarters EPS X 4).

3. Divide Step 1 PE by Step 2 to get the earnings growth factor.

So for Google -

1. Current PE ratio 25.5,

2. Current Share Price $2860 divided by (EPS $30.69 X4 = $122.76) = 23.3

4. 25.5 divided by 23.3 = 9%.

The higher the growth factor the better the stocks future prospects. Now couple this with the PE ratio and the EC ratio and one gets a good picture of a stocks valuation right now.

For instance look at Amazons EGF of 71%! Conversely look at intel's negative EGF of -20%. However that bad score is partially offset by the low PE of 8.8 and and EC score of 13.

So for a truly great stock to buy right now one wants to see a high EGF, coupled with a low PE and low EC.

The number 1 stock right now that fits the bill is surprise, surprise APPLE! The one stock that has so far refused to budge lower! Though this list of GOOD stocks contains several close contenders such as Qualcom, AMD, Nvidia, and of course Amazon!

I have also added the stocks that were on my watch list to buy into the primary table that I briefly covered in my last analysis, apart from Oracle, and where apart from Micron these were all unplanned buys where distant limit orders that I have had in place for some time were triggered during the recent sell off.. Stocks that I will cover in-depth in future updates, but all are what I consider secondary stocks. Whilst AMD and TSMC now rise to Primary status. And if one needs clarification on this Primary means that these are THE PRIMARY AI tech stocks to be invested in for the long-run, with Google as numero uno.

And now for visualising the buying levels for the 9 primary AI tech stocks..

This article is an excerpt from my recent in-depth analysis that mapped out how low AI tech stocks could trade during the stock market panic of 2022.
