There is belief in the AI ​​stock as it provides direct exposure to artificial intelligence (AI) a market with strong upside potential.

Don’t get me wrong – just because some big companies are betting on C3.ai doesn’t mean you should necessarily follow suit. Still, if billions of dollars are flowing into C3.ai and machine learning in general, it’s worth studying this trend. In the end, you might even think of staking some of your own capital on C3.ai.

5 investors are betting big on AI stocks

You may not have billions of dollars to take a position on C3.ai. However, regulatory filings reveal that these companies are (or at least were) among C3.ai’s mega-shareholders.

  • Avant-garde: A gigantic position of 9.14 million AI shares, which is equivalent to 8.41% of the outstanding shares.
  • black rock (NYSE:BLACK): 5.45 million C3.ai shares, representing 5.01% of C3.ai shares outstanding.

C3.ai is a strong contender in the growing AI market

What do these big financial companies see in C3.ai? Clearly, they are taking stock positions because they see a strong future for machine learning.

C3.ai is one of the most well-known and successful competitors in the AI ​​industry. Impressively, the company raked in $66.7 million in revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2023, surpassing C3.ai’s guidance range of $63-65 million.

Additionally, C3.ai CEO Thomas Siebel expects his business to “become cash positive and non-GAAP by the end of” fiscal 2024. That is not, however. not Siebel’s only prediction. The CEO also predicts that AI “will soon be a $600 billion addressable software market.” It’s easy to imagine that C3.ai will grow in tandem with this niche segment; after all, the company is “the biggest application player” in the field of generative AI, according to Siebel.

Consider AI Stock for an Accelerating Machine Learning Market

There is certainly no guarantee that the AI ​​market will “soon” reach a value of $600 billion, as Siebel predicts. On the other hand, you might regret it if the C3.ai CEO’s predictions are accurate and you didn’t have enough exposure to the machine learning industry.

So, it makes sense to pick a high-trust AI company and consider a stock position today. Some financial whales are already investing billions of dollars in C3.ai, so feel free to take an appropriately sized stake in AI stocks for your own portfolio.
