Tech speculators may be starting to grow wary of the growth promised by the artificial intelligence hype bubble. WealthWise Financial CEO Loreen Gilbert details which major tech stocks remain independently strong, while benefiting from AI trends.
The stock market moved sharply higher on Thursday, with the Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQINDEX: ^IXIC) picking up more than 1% shortly after noon. Artificial intelligence (AI) has been a key trend lifting markets, and there are plenty of AI stocks in the Nasdaq. Two companies in particular have made AI a big part of their future business models, and on Thursday, both Adobe (NASDAQ: ADBE) and Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) made sizable gains that further added to the furor surrounding the trend.
The online personalized-apparel retailer continues to lose active customers, and those who remain are spending less money.
Perhaps no other company has benefited more from the AI mania than chipmaker Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA). Nvidia's earnings report was solid, but its guidance was so far ahead of Wall Street expectations that the stock jumped well over 30% and the company briefly joined the $1 trillion market cap club. What really stood out on the earnings call was how well the company's data center business performed.
Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has been selling electric vehicles (EVs) at scale for more than a decade, and it has since been the industry leader by a wide margin. In 2014, the company revealed plans to introduce driver assistance software that would eventually be capable of piloting each Tesla vehicle without human input. Today, that technology is known as full self-driving (or autonomous driving), and it's currently available in beta mode for some Tesla customers.

Let's take a look at three AI-related stocks and see why one might want to be avoided right now while the other two have potential. One AI-related company to avoid at the moment is Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA).

Analyzing these market movers can tell us which trends are impacting capital markets right now. Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) share prices surged 36% last month, pushing its market cap briefly above $1 trillion (it currently sits at $951 billion).

Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) stock has delivered stunning gains of 84% so far in 2023, which may seem surprising given that the company's revenue and earnings are expected to shrink this year. Its earnings are forecasted to drop to $2.86 per share from $3.50 per share in 2022. The rich earnings multiple and the headwinds that AMD faces suggest that it may be too late for investors to buy into this semiconductor stock's growth spurt.
