AI's Investment Implications

IMO, normal short term cycle points around $160 or worst case $158 before going back. This has to happen before the results declared, otherwise, AAPL won’t touch these figures.

It is not WB or TC who brings apple down, as both a pro-AAPL, but economic activities like FED will bring down or market sentiments brings down.

See GOOGL, even after good results, After market jumped and then came down to almost same level.

I think macro forces could tank the market 10-20% from here…Trump is erratic and could be impeached…World events can also affect the market…Aapl and other good long term hold stocks will be good buys if the market tanks…interest rates can also spook the market…

China is leading in deployment but not fundamental AI research :slight_smile:

Singapore is very desperate for AI specialists too, now any Singaporeans who are smart enough to do doctoral research in CS especially AI will be paid a salary more than twice the starting pay of a SWE :slight_smile: Too bad, I’m too old. No string attached, MUST be a Singaporean :slight_smile: Singapore is very determined to join the AI race.
