5 Top Artificial Intelligence Stocks To Watch Ahead Of September 2021
While investors are wondering why stocks are down this week, tech stocks could be worth noting. In particular, some of the best artificial intelligence (AI) stocks in the stock market today would be viable plays. This would be mostly due to the sentiment around reopening stocks continuing to waver as coronavirus fears escalate. So much so that cruise line stocks such as Carnival (NYSE: CCL) continue to lose steam. Now, should this trend continue, I could see investors turning back towards the tech industry, and AI stocks by extension.
If anything, the AI market continues to grow at breakneck speeds right now. In fact, Grand View Research estimates that the $62.35 billion industry could grow at a compound annual growth rate of 40.2% through 2028. With the applications for AI tech expanding across global industries, this growth would make sense. Even now, AI tech plays a crucial role in a vast array of markets in the world today. Evidently, from tech giants like Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) to e-commerce names like Stitch Fix (NASDAQ: SFIX), this appears to be the trend. Overall, as AI companies continue to bolster their tech and use cases continue to increase, AI stocks would be in focus. With this in mind, here are five AI stocks making headlines in the stock market now.

Moreover, Amazon is reportedly looking to open physical retail locations, according to The Wall Street Journal. Even with its current momentum in the tech and e-commerce industries, the company continues to make aggressive plays. Would this make AMZN stock a top watch in the market for you?
