AI Investments: Is it a Bubble?

Today, let’s tackle the hot topic of AI investments and whether it’s a bubble waiting to burst or a long-term investment opportunity.

The Current Landscape

In recent quarterly discussions between CEOs of S&P500 companies and analysts, AI has taken center stage, featuring in 36% of these conversations. It’s not just corporate boardrooms buzzing; newspapers and TV shows are abuzz with discussions about AI on a daily basis. But amidst all this hype, the question remains: Is AI a bubble?

Projected Growth

I firmly believe it’s not. One compelling reason lies in the projected growth of the AI industry over the next six years, forecasted at a staggering 37% per year. Now, a hallmark of a bubble is when soaring stock prices aren’t backed by fundamental improvements. However, in the case of AI, the fundamentals are robust, pointing towards sustained growth.

Strategic Considerations on AI investments

Now, let’s discuss the strategic aspects of investing in AI. Before diving in, investors must make informed choices about how to approach AI investments. This could involve investing in ‘pure’ AI companies like Google and Microsoft, which are significant players in the AI space. Alternatively, investors may consider the risk-reward balance between large caps and small caps, or opt for diversified baskets of shares across AI subsectors.

Navigating AI Investment Choices

However, navigating these choices requires careful consideration. Investors must understand the composition and rules of any investment baskets they choose. At our company, we’ve curated a selection of about 50 individual stocks heavily involved in AI, from a pool of approximately 60,000 stocks. While I can’t list them all here, if you have a specific AI application in mind, we’re here to assist you.

Hands-on Example

To illustrate, let’s consider a hands-on example: a basket focusing on the Semiconductor subsector. An ETF like VanEck Semiconductors invests in 25 semiconductor stocks, including industry giants like Nvidia, AMD, Intel, and Qualcomm. With one investment, investors can ride the wave of semiconductor development.


In conclusion, I’m confident that the AI sector is not a bubble but rather a promising opportunity for investors, with an expected annual growth rate of 37%. As investors prepare for this growth, we’re here to offer guidance and support every step of the way. If you’re ready to explore AI investments further, we’re eager to assist you in making informed decisions.
