To make money by investing in the stock market, one ought to follow time-tested investing principles with patience. But sometimes the market creates opportunities that have the potential to reward investors who are ready to ride the bandwagon of time. Artificial intelligence is the ultimate money-making bandwagon of 2023 and perhaps several years to come. While many believe AI is quickly becoming a hype and pushing stocks’ valuation to dangerous levels, there are credible analysts who still believe tech stocks have a long way to go in this AI revolution.

The AI Gold Rush

Wedbush’s Dan Ives recently said that the AI “gold rush” would be driving tech stocks higher in the second half of 2023.

“The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th derivatives of this A.I. Gold Rush are just starting to evolve for the tech landscape. As we have covered the tech sector for decades and saw the dot.com bubble and burst firsthand, [we believe] this is the start of a 4th Industrial Revolution playing out across tech over the coming years that is still being underestimated by the Street in our opinion,” Ives said during an interview with CNBC.

Not all bubbles are bad. Some bubbles have the potential to make investors rich and give them evergreen gains and long-term opportunities. SkyBridge Capital Founder Anthony Scaramucci, while talking to BNN Bloomberg, said that while AI is “probably in a bubble,” there are still some AI stocks that should be in investors’ portfolio. Anthony Scaramucci specifically talked about Nvidia, a stock many analysts believe has become overvalued amid its latest AI-driven performance. Scaramucci said that Nvidia may be overvalued currently “but if you own it for the next 15 years, you’ll probably be OK.”

One of the biggest reasons why AI stocks have the potential to gain further is the explosive potential and applications of generative AI. According to Bloomberg Intelligence, the generative AI market could expand by about 40%, to $1.3 trillion by 2032.

The AI Bubble and How to Make the Most of It

Billionaire investor George Soros’ thoughts on bubbles are interesting and have become highly relevant in the current backdrop. Soros in 2009 famously said:

“When I see a bubble forming, I rush to buy, adding fuel to the fire.”

In a detailed lecture in 2009, Soros explained his bubble theory. Soros thinks that a boom-bust cycle is set in motion when a trend and a misconception positively reinforce each other. Positive reinforcements keep inflating the bubble through positive feedbacks. This bubble is tested by market dynamics from time to time but if the trend is strong enough, it survives this test, according to Soros. This cycle enters what Soros calls the “twilight” stage when the trend begins to lose stream but nonetheless maintains inertia before eventually beginning to decline.

At what stage the current AI boom is? No one can say for sure but an overwhelming majority of market analysts believe the AI revolution is just getting started. To make money from this revolution, analysts recommend some stocks that are expected to ride the AI wave.

So we believe that we will be deploying generative AI over the course of the next few months, and we’ll talk more about it At a later event. But we think that has an opportunity both to significantly improve our customer efficiency and the efficacy of our products, at the same time, also to drive efficiencies within the way we run Palo Alto Networks. I think last but not the least, which is something you didn’t ask, but I’ll say, separately, Lee and his team have been working hard to see and look at the adverse impact that generative AI could have in terms of adversaries using Generative AI to build new malware, to try and attack our customers.”
