Companies are just starting to embrace the technology and what it can do. However, early results are very promising, allowing organizations to become more efficient and better serve their customers.

Nvidia will continue to be the leading company to build the more powerful data centers needed to power AI applications. Meanwhile, Nvidia is not a one-trick pony company, and its networking business is also benefiting greatly from AI.

Nvidia has been experiencing incredible growth, including more than tripling its revenue during its most recent quarter. Despite this, the stock is attractively valued at only 36 Forward P/E, which is poised to rise as the business grows and investors drive up the stock price.

soundhound ai

shares of soundhound ai (NASDAQ: SOUN) Earlier this year, news broke that Nvidia had invested in an AI-powered voice assistant company. However, recently, the stock has returned to more reasonable levels.

SoundHound's technology helps voice assistants and humans interact more naturally, allowing users to ask more complex questions while getting better answers. The company has made strong inroads in the automobile industry and is also making good progress in the restaurant sector. However, the applications of its technology should extend far beyond these two industry sectors.

The company has an attractive recurring revenue business model under which it receives royalty payments based on the volume, usage or life of the product. For applications where no product is involved, such as with its restaurant offerings, it uses a subscription model.

SoundHound is still relatively small, generating just $46 million in revenue last year. However, it has a large booking backlog of $661 million, which if honored would translate into revenue over the next several years. The weighted average length of its contracts is about six and a half years, with the greater revenue backend loaded. Most of the company's backlog comes from its relationships with about 20 auto brands and building its technology into new models of their vehicles.

Trading at more than 21 times forward sales, SoundHound stock isn't cheap. However, its valuation has declined significantly in recent months, and it has great potential for upside if it can continue to transfer its technology to more products. For example, entering smartphones would be a game changer for the company and the stock.
