How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

APPLE (AAPL) AI Tech Stocks Investing 2020

Companies / Apple Jan 20, 2020 - 08:11 AM 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.

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

Top 15 AI Stocks Buying Levels Q1 2020.

The whole of this analysis including Buying Levels for 15 AI Tech Stocks was first been made available to Patrons who support my work: AI Stocks 2019 Review and Buying Levels Q1 2020

5. APPLE (AAPL)

I don't like APPLE PRODUCTS! Over hyped, over priced. closed systems. For unlike the Apple generation I have grown up on open source platforms such as that which the likes of Google promotes, and to a lesser extent Microsoft. But by virtue of the fact APPLE is a control freak corporation that has many millions of customers who blindly stroll into Apple stores to buy, then Apple IS able to charge ridiculous prices that the likes of Dell or Samsung can only dream about.

APPLE Up 78%

Houston we have lift off! What can one expect when Apple can charge whatever it likes from a captive market, typically paying 30% more than they should! That's not to say Apple products are rubbish. they're not, it's just that they are over priced with a lot of restrictions in the o/s and hardware.

Apple stock spent many months gyrating around $200, a level that now looks long gone, so all those who missed the boat need to get over it or they might find themselves saying the same about failing to invest at sub $300, around which Apple is likely to trade for much of 2020.

Apple stock is more than any primed for a significant correction and could take a serious tumble all the way to $255.

And those are my 5 primary AI Tech Stocks, all delivering far too much during 2019 and thus should be ripe for a correction going into 2020.
