    Inside Melinda French Gates’ plans to end gender inequality

    Melinda French Gates is one of the most influential philanthropists in the world. As co-founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the largest private charitable foundation in the U.S., she spearheaded donations of totaling $77.6 billion in grants since its inception in 2000. However, Gates will be resigning from the foundation as of June 7th, 2024. Now, she wants women to have the opportunities she and many others did not and end gender inequality in the United States. French Gates's work in diversifying opportunities continues at Pivotal Ventures LLC, which she founded in 2015. Under French Gates’ vision, Pivotal Ventures has pledged $1 billion to investment and incubation firms supporting initiatives that empower women and people of color in four key sectors: politics, technology, finance, and storytelling.

    Apple is a 'sleeper AI play': Strategist

    Nvidia (NVDA) shares are rising in extended-hours trading after the chip giant topped first quarter earnings estimates and announced a 10-for-1 stock split. Public Ventures President and Chief Market Strategist Lou Basenese joins Asking for a Trend to break down the earnings and analyze how long the company can keep up the momentum. Despite beating Wall Street's expectations, Basenese highlights that the magnitude of Nvidia's beat is the smallest it has ever been, at about 8%. He warns, "Expectations at some point are going to get too far ahead of what Nvidia can deliver, but it's not yet." "I think it's the leading candidate to be the next $3 trillion market cap company, but if I had a dollar to put to work today and I want to 10x it, it's not Nvidia. It's probably in the smaller cap side of the market," he adds, saying that of the "Magnificent Seven," Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) is the most "reasonably valued." Basenese calls Nvidia's stock split a "brilliant move psychologically," as buying a stock at a lower price is more enticing. He adds that it does not change any of Nvidia's fundamental metrics or value calculations. For investors looking to get in on the AI sector, Basenese highlights Microsoft's (MSFT) ability to push AI products onto the market to create demand. He also points to Apple (AAPL) as "the sleeper AI play."  "Apple is kind of perceived as they missed the boat ... they're never first or second to market. They come in later, but then they go. They come in late, but they end up being the leader." He adds, "They have two billion active devices in use. If they just iterate and add a little AI somewhere, it has a magnified impact."
