Do you hear that? It’s the new buzzword in every financial news story, every earnings announcement. I’m talking about AI. Artificial Intelligence. But with all the talk, what are the best stocks in this space to invest in, and more importantly, how? 

Investing in AI – Building Your AI Powered Stock List

This is Part 1 of a Two Part Session on AI investing. Today we are going to discuss how to build a stock list using AI stocks, and it starts out quite simple.  I’m going to ask Chat GPT to build one for me…

It responded to me with 19 companies involved in one way or another with AI. 

Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL)

Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)

NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA)


Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN)

Baidu, Inc. (BIDU)

Tencent Holdings Limited (TCEHY)

Intel Corporation (INTC)

Salesforce.com, Inc. (CRM)

Alibaba Group Holding Limited (BABA)

Qualcomm Incorporated (QCOM)

Apple Inc. (AAPL)

Facebook, Inc. (FB)

Sony Corporation (SNE)

Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation (CTSH)

Twilio Inc. (TWLO)

Palantir Technologies Inc. (PLTR)

Splunk Inc. (SPLK)

Nuance Communications, Inc. (NUAN)

Ok so let’s take what ChatGPT has given us and dig a bit deeper. First I am going to add these to alist to keep track of, but I need more…  

I need to know about market cap, so let’s look into this site – www.companiesbymarketcap.com

Immediately, this website gives us a list of all companies by market cap, but if you just want the AI companies, click in category at the top and click on AI. The result is 30 companies. It’s possible that 19 of these are the same as ChatGPT but there are 11 more that I didn’t get. I want to add this to my list as well.

I also said I wanted to find out which of these were optionable. Well, here’s the answer. From the ChatGPT list I got 12 optionable stocks out of 19.  From Companies with Market Cap, I got 23 optionable stocks out of 30. Total = 35 optionable stocks.

Below is an updated list of optionable AI stocks in Alphabetical Order:

AAPL    Apple

AI      C3.ai Inc

AMZN    Amazon.com

AUR     Aurora 

BABA    Alibaba 

BBAI    Bigbear Ai Inc

CTSH    Cognizant Tech Solution

DT      Dynatrace Inc

EMBK    Embark Technology Inc

EXAI    Exscientia 

GOOGL   Alphabet Inc.

IBM     International Business Machine

INOD    Innodata

INTC    Intel

LTRN    Lantern Pharma 

MBLY    Mobileye

MSFT    Microsoft

NVDA    Nvidia

ON      On Semiconductor

SPLK    Splunk Inc

STEM    Stem Inc

TSLA    Tesla 

TSP     Tusimple 

TWLO    Twilio Inc

UPST    Upstart 

I’m not done yet.

Some of these companies I have never heard of, so I want to run this one more time for price movement. If the latest Bull move in the stock market is in AI stocks, then I want the companies that are pushing the markets higher. I am now going to take my AI stock list, and rank it YTD (Year-to-Date), to see what stocks in this list are in the top 10 percent of their 2023 range.

And here we are. My list has nearly been cut in half. 16 optionable stocks that have largely been the reason the stock market is higher in the last quarter. From 0-100, these stocks are trading in the 90+ stock range for this year. The top 5 are hitting new highs for the year as we speak. 

This list will be a moving target, as some of these may drop off over time as others may come on. But looking at the surface, there are a lot of well-known names on this list. Your take away isn’t the names, it’s the involvement of AI that they are in today. 

Next week I will discuss Investing Strategies in this group…  till then!

Stock and options trading has large potential rewards, but also large potential risk.

You must be aware of the risks and be willing to accept them in order to invest in the stock and options market. Do not trade with money you cannot afford to lose.

This is neither an offer to buy/sell/ or recommend a particular stock or option.

Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been actually executed, the results may have under or overcompensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with hindsight.

No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.
