Artificial intelligence (AI) has been the hottest market topic of 2023. And it’s easy to understand why, as the technology allows us to achieve digital feats that otherwise felt impossible.

To little surprise, several big-tech players, including Microsoft MSFT, NVIDIA NVDA, and Alphabet GOOGL, have been scurrying to become the leader.

Let’s take a closer glance at each company’s AI developments and a few other aspects.


Microsoft has gained widespread attention following its new AI-powered Bing search engine and Edge browser announcements.

The new search engine and Edge browser are expected to deliver enhanced search results, complete answers, a unique chat experience, and an overall much easier experience when exploring the web.

MSFT shares provide exposure to red-hot AI technology paired with an income stream; MSFT’s annual dividend presently yields 1.1%. Impressively, the company has grown its payout by more than 10% over the last five years.

Alphabet has recently unveiled its new conversational AI service, Bard, powered by its next-generation LaMDA (language model for dialogue applications).

Bard is expected to deliver high-quality responses drawn from the web, pairing the globe’s knowledge with the power of Alphabet’s LaMDA.

GOOGL shares have gotten much cheaper following rough price action in 2022, with the company’s 17.7X current forward earnings multiple sitting well beneath the 26.1X five-year median.

A big focus point of NVDA’s latest release was its Data Center results, which include its AI operations; Data Center revenue totaled $3.6 billion, growing 11% from the year-ago quarter.

There were also several strategic highlights within the Data Center segment, including a partnership with Deutsche Bank DB to further the use of AI within financial services.

The market was impressed with its latest quarterly results, sending shares soaring. This is illustrated by the green arrows in the chart below.
