If you are looking to invest in lesser-value artificial intelligence and intelligence-related (AI&R) stocks consider one of the few "penny" stocks that are trading for $5.00/share or less and also have market capitalizations of at least $50M. Below is a short list of 9 such stocks. None are being recommended, per se but, rather, are highlighted as possible opportunities to profit from the speculative frenzy in AI&R stocks. Access the stock symbols provided to do your own research.

Incidentally, a penny stock no longer refers to a stock trading for less than $1/share but, rather, it refers to the stock of a company that trades for less than $5 per share. Penny stocks are usually considered high-risk investments due to their low price, lack of liquidity, small market capitalization, and wide bid-ask spread. Most penny stocks trade via over-the-counter transactions hence a cautionary note from TalkMarkets that "penny and/or micro-cap stocks...are easily manipulated; do your own careful due diligence". 

The list below provides a profile of each penny stock, their current market capitalization, current stock price, earnings/share (if any), current short interest percentage, and stock return from their low during the last week of  April or first week of May until the end of July (i.e. almost 3 months) in descending order.

Conclusion

Given that the 11 stocks in the AI Bubble Portfolio (see here) are UP 79.3% since the end of April it suggests that there is an opportunity for considerable upside in the "Penny" AI Stocks Portfolio going forward. 8 of the 9 stocks currently have negative earnings per share so it will be interesting to see if their involvement with AI will result in any improvement in their bottom lines. We will report on their progress on a weekly basis.
