Buy This AI Underdog Today
Tech stocks are poised for yet another big run, thanks to several incoming innovations.
And our team has pinpointed the company set to benefit the most.
Investors have largely overlooked this household name, focusing on other artificial intelligence (AI) leaders.
So you can still pick up its shares for a fraction of what you’d pay for its competitors.
That won’t be true for long, however.
In fact, Alan Knuckman has dubbed the company “our AI champion.”
I’ll give you all the details in a second, including its name and ticker.
But before we get to that, let’s look at our Top Stories and the Reader Forum.
Your Top Stories & Analysis of the Week:
- “Seven Days in January'' (Daily Reckoning, Byron King): While U.S. missiles were landing in Yemen, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin was laid up in the hospital. But everyone from the President to Austin’s own Chief of Staff claim they were unaware that the Pentagon’s #2 was out of commission. As a former aide to the U.S. Chief of Naval Operations, Byron knows how things are supposed to work — and explains why there are big holes in the “official” version of this story.
- “Schwab’s Face as Red as His Smacked Ass ” (Rude Awakening, Sean Ring): Sean was downright giddy this week thanks to some big blows against the global elite. First, recently elected Argentine President Javier Milei dropped some “truth bombs” at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. The invited guest blasted collectivism and socialism, which are both championed by WEF founder Klaus Scwab. Then Heritage Foundation's Kevin Roberts dismissed the WEF's globalist pretensions on its own stage as well. And that was before Donald Trump added some icing to the cake…
- “The AI Rabbit That Stole the Show” (Paradigm Mastermind Group, Chris Campbell): The Consumer Electronics Show is over, but the AI 2.0 revolution is just getting started. Soon everyone will have AI-powered devices in their pockets — giving us true digital assistants that can handle complicated tasks as well as any human. And Chris recently told Paradigm Mastermind Group members about one consumer product that will lead the way. It’s truly a glimpse of what your future holds, which is why I unlocked Chris’ writeup for you.
Remember, we publish tens to HUNDREDS of stories. The write-ups and presentations above are our TOP ones for the week — including one that had been roped off from the public. If you want to stay ahead of the pack, make sure you’re caught up now.

The Reader Forum:
First from the mailbag today, Income Alliance member Terry H. wants Zach Scheidt to know:
I am so happy to have found you and Jim Rickards. Your income strategy is exactly what I need. It spoke to me — feels right.
Terry, we’re happy you found them, too! And it’s little surprise Zach’s service resonates with you. The Income Alliance is designed to give everyday investors a chance to profit just like big money managers.
I wish you continued success with both Jim and Zach — and I look forward to sharing this with them.
We also received a lot of feedback about our response to Henry M., who accused us of selling his email address last week.
Edwin P. appreciated our explanation, telling us:
With so much information, it’s like drinking from a fire hose for us consumers. And I’m sure it’s not easy for your staff to review, digest and produce information. Your clarification about sending personal email and contact information was comforting to many of us.
Edwin, thanks for taking the time to write in. That’s what the Reader Forum is all about — giving you confidence in Paradigm Press and offering peace of mind where we can.
Clearing up members’ misconceptions is a key part of my mission here.
And as you say, we do produce a lot of content — filled with world-class research and analysis you can’t find anywhere else. But you always have full control over how much mail we send you.
Speaking of which, Debra M. says:
I have a limited amount of time to read my financial newsletters, but I spend the majority of it constantly clicking through dozens of “unsubscribes” every day. Isn’t there a way to ask you to make those stop?
Thanks for writing in, Debra… and I’m sorry you’ve been bombarded by emails.
First, remember that we’re a relatively small and completely independent publisher. So we don’t have deep-pocketed Wall Street firms paying us to push their preferred narratives.
While that means we’re free to share our honest insights and analysis, we also need to advertise our services to keep the lights on.
The emails you’re receiving are why we’re able to retain high-quality analysts like Jim Rickards… James Altucher… Bryon King… Ray Blanco… Zach Scheidt and more.
But you shouldn’t be getting dozens of emails from us every day. And you certainly shouldn’t need to hit the “unsubscribe” button more than once.
Please give my team a call at 1-844-731-0984 on a weekday between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. ET, or use our online contact form. Tell us more about the unwanted emails you’re receiving, and we’ll see how we can help.
And that wraps up this week’s Reader Forum.
Remember, your feedback is vital to our success… so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions? I’ll get answers! Comments? Let me hear them! Problems? I’ll try to solve them!
This is YOUR forum!

Now, here’s what’s happening around the water cooler this week…
The Water Cooler — Upcoming Events and More
The “AI Squad” we sent to the Consumer Electronics Show came home bursting with stories about all the incredible technologies they saw.
As soon as they go on sale, people will rush out to buy them.
“We’re entering an upgrade cycle,” Ray tells us.
“Everyone bought new computers and smartphones during the COVID era,” he explains. “Now those devices are three to four years old.“
That’s an eternity, considering all the advancements we’ve seen since then… not to mention the innovations coming up.
Ray points out that Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) has announced it will end support for Windows 10 in 2025… which likely means the company is getting ready to announce a Windows 12 operating system.
“It’s going to have a lot of built-in AI,” Ray predicts, which will make the devices running it more secure. In fact, some companies will practically be forced to upgrade “because of compliance.”
Banks, for instance, will need to buy AI-enhanced computers to prove they’re doing all they can to keep their data — and clients’ money — safe.
On the other hand, Ray admits that Apple Inc. (AAPL) is lagging in the AI race. But one of its upcoming products could be a real game-changer — much like the iPod and iPhone.
The company’s loyal fans will buy anything Apple makes, of course. Then word-of-mouth will cause it to catch on like wildfire — spurring its competitors to develop similar tech (and more upgrades).
And that’s not to mention other must-have devices that will be available to the public soon, like the “digital assistant” Rabbit that Chris talks about in Paradigm Mastermind Group.
We still think Microsoft has the clearest path to AI profits. Its shares are up nearly 20% since we called the stock an “AI Bargain” back in October.
If you want to profit from the worldwide upgrade cycle, however, you should focus on the semiconductors and microchips that will power all of these next-generation devices.
Of course, the AI boom has already pushed a lot of these stocks to lofty heights.
One big exception has been Intel Corp. (INTC).
Our team says that won’t be the case much longer.
Ray points out that Intel has invested heavily in advanced manufacturing equipment. It can churn out chips that are smaller and more powerful than any rival can match.
So it’s “moving very hard towards having the best manufacturing process on the planet,” Ray tells us.
Our Dan Amoss agrees. Looking at the tech landscape, he says, “I would go long Intel.”
Alan chimes in to say that Intel’s stock chart looks very promising.
“Most people missed Nvidia,” he says. “It went from $100 to $500.”
Now, “Intel is going to get reinvented — setting it up for a similar run.”
That’s why Alan declares “Intel our AI champion.”
“We need to plant a flag on Intel,” he tells us.
So if Intel isn’t in your stock portfolio, it probably should be.
