Here’s an AI Stock Freebie

Written By Jason Simpkins

Posted October 21, 2023

I’m not sure if you’re aware but over the past year or so, we at Angel Investment Research have been cultivating a robust presence on YouTube.

One of our staple segments there is “5-in-5” where our editors sit down and answer questions from you, the reader. 

And earlier this week, I had the privilege of taking part

Now, I’m bringing this up because a lot of you had questions about AI and its increasing presence in the defense sector.

That’s fair. 

In fact, it’s not just fair, it’s ingenious because AI is already playing a major role in the ways wars are fought. 

We’ve seen it in Ukraine, where field commanders are dialing up drone strikes with computer tablets. 

And we’re seeing it in Israel, where the IDF is using it to track down terrorists, map out underground tunnels, and guide missile strikes.

Indeed, this is such a big deal that I just released a huge new report on an AI company that’s at the center of it all. If you haven’t seen that yet, it’s a must-watch. 

Unfortunately, I can’t tell you exactly what it is because I’ve got people who are paying good money for that information. 

However, I can tell you about another AI stock that I’ve been trading in and out of my Secret Stock Files portfolio. 

And that’s C3.ai. 

I was asked specifically about C3 in that "5-in-5" video above, and it’s definitely a company that’s worth talking about. 

As I told our viewers, it’s a stock I initially recommended more than a year ago — before the whole AI craze really took off. 

C3 caught my attention because the U.S. Air Force has been using it to conduct preventative maintenance on its fleet of fighters and bombers.

By analyzing more flight data, maintenance logs, and user manuals than any human ever could, C3’s software can predict which subsystems on a fighter jet will need to be replaced and when. 

This gives the ground crew a head start to order parts and schedule repairs ahead of time. 

And that’s just one aspect of what this technology can do. 

In other parts of the military, C3’s software is being used to analyze potential insider threats, adjudicate security clearance, and model missile trajectories.

That last one is extremely important, because if you’ve heard me talk about hypersonic weapons, you know how serious the threat is. 

We’re talking about missiles that fly as fast as 20x the speed of sound — traveling from, say, Moscow to Washington, D.C., in a matter of minutes.

They can also be deployed from glide vehicles that skip along the upper reaches of Earth’s atmosphere before firing down on their intended target. 

That speed and maneuverability makes them extremely difficult to intercept. But with AI programs now modeling thousands of potential missile trajectories, we have a much better chance at neutralizing the threat. 

And that’s not all. 

C3 is increasingly becoming a major private-sector partner, too. 

Especially in the energy sector, where it works alongside heavyweights like Koch Industries, Baker Hughes, and Shell. 

In that arena, C3 performs a service similar to the one it carries out on behalf of the Air Force — monitoring and analyzing pipelines, drilling platforms, and other equipment to ensure everything is in working order. 

That software, called AI Reliability, is now monitoring roughly 20,000 pieces of energy equipment, potentially saving $2 billion annually and preventing costly disasters like leaks and spills.

And as fortune would have it, the company just signed a new partnership deal with Shell that will improve AI Reliability’s effectiveness.

You see, Shell has predictive maintenance technology of its own, which combs historical data and real-time sensor readings to identify patterns consistent with equipment failures.

And now, through this deal, Shell’s technology and data are being integrated into C3's AI Reliability platform for the betterment of the entire industry.

This is why I’m such a big fan of C3.ai. It’s the perfect case study of how AI technology is being used in both the government and private sectors. 

And I’m proud to say Secret Stock Files members have cashed in. 

Earlier this year we sold out of our initial position in C3 for a 139% gain. 

Then, when stock fell back below $20 per share in April, we bought back in and are now sitting on a 50% gain. 

If you missed out, fear not.

As I point out in my "5-in-5" video, the stock today is still only trading for $25 per share.

That’s not bad for a stock that just a few months ago cost more than $40 per share. So definitely give it a look. 

But again, you want to really profit from AI — and I mean REALLY profit…

Then be sure to check out my new report. Because the company in there is an absolute kingmaker.

Until next time…

Fight on,
