2 No-Brainer Artificial Intelligence (AI) Stocks (not Named Nvidia) to Buy Right Now

The AI bull market is here. Stocks are back at all-time highs, thanks largely to a new boom in artificial intelligence (AI).

The launch of ChatGPT has set off a race to be a leader in what top CEOs and major investors think will be the next transformative technology, generative AI. Nvidia, which sells the graphics processing unit (GPU) components that are the backbone of the advanced computing systems required for AI, has been the biggest winner so far.
