AI revolution

Signs of AI Growth

In the latest confirmation of the AI revolution, mid-cap artificial intelligence company c3.ai, Inc. (NYSE: AI) reported exceptional fourth-quarter results and adjusted its full-year guidance upward, surpassing current consensus estimates. Wedbushโ€™s tech analyst Dan Ives views c3.aiโ€™s performance as a compelling testament to the swiftly advancing AI revolution.

Accelerating Momentum

Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) emerged as an early indicator of this trend, with its Copilot AI tool experiencing robust demand, signaling substantial growth in the AI sector.

Ives, notorious for hailing Palantir Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: PLTR) as โ€œThe Messi of AI,โ€ lauded the company for its triumphant venture into commercial AI applications.

Moreover, Ives praised Nvidia Corp. (NASDAQ: NVDA) for its optimistic forecasts and strong financial results. Referring to Nvidiaโ€™s CEO Jensen Huang, Ives remarked, โ€œLast week, the Godfather of AI spoke, and the world paid heed.โ€

Highlighting c3.aiโ€™s surging demand, Ives remarked, โ€œNow c3 is witnessing a spike in demand, heralding an imminent AI revolution.โ€

Market Dynamics

The surge in AI-leveraged stocks has prompted discussions about potential โ€œirrational exuberanceโ€ in the market. Ives contends that the current AI enthusiasm mirrors the โ€œ1995 Moment,โ€ portending a monumental $1 trillion in incremental spending over the next decade, reshaping the software ecosystem and the broader technology sector.

Drawing contrasts with the infamous 1999 Dotcom bubble burst, Ives emphasized that the current scenario bears little resemblance to that era, characterized by inflated valuations, feeble monetization infrastructure, and speculative business models.

Future Prospects

Gene Munster of Deepwater Asset Management anticipates a prolonged three-to-five-year tech upsurge fueled by the burgeoning AI revolution, mitigating concerns of an imminent market bubble burst.

The Technology Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSE: XLK) saw a marginal decline of 0.24% in premarket trading, standing at $204.20, according to Benzinga Pro data.
