24/7 Insights

  • Nvidia Corp. (NASDAQ: NVDA) stock is up sharply in the past year.
  • Here are three other AI stocks that outperformed it.

It seems everyone wants to buy artificial intelligence (AI) stocks these days. After all, Nvidia Corp. (NASDAQ: NVDA), which has become a bellwether for the AI segment, saw its shares rise almost 240% last year, and they are up 140% or so thus far in 2024. Plus, Nvidia stock is effecting a 10-for-1 split. Ahead of the split, analysts on average recommended buying shares. However, they currently do not see further upside in the next 52 weeks, as their consensus price target is less than the current share price.

Are there better options? There are a lot of AI stocks to choose, from Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) to C3.ai Inc. (NASDAQ: AI). Even Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) can be seen as an AI stock. Turns out, the following three stocks have outperformed Nvidia in the past year. A couple of them could be candidates for a stock split as well. Let’s take a look.
