C3.ai (NYSE:AI) stock is getting a boost on Monday after ARK Invest CEO Cathie Wood singles out artificial intelligence (AI) as the next big move in investing.
Here’s what Wood had to say on the matter at the Milken Institute conference in October, as reported by MoneyWise
“We were assuming that in the next 10 years, artificial intelligence would deliver, in the enterprise software space, a market cap opportunity of $30 trillion. Our new number is $80 trillion. We think that is the big new frontier.”
With Wood taking such a strong stance on AI, investors are flocking to companies in the space. That includes C3.ai, which has seen some 2.5 million shares change hands as of this writing. That’s just shy of its daily average trading volume of 2.7 million shares.
