AI “Bubble Busters” Drive Jim Cramer “Crazy”

Jim Cramer yet again took a swing at AI naysayers who he called “bubble busters.” Cramer said these AI bears are “all around” him and it drives him “crazy.” After discussing Nvidia’s dominance in the AI industry and how the company is expected to remain at the top of the AI food chain because of its high performance chips, Jim Cramer started discussing stocks that would benefit from the AI revolution. Some of these companies would benefit from AI directly while others would see a huge demand for their products and services indirectly.

Jim Cramer also attended the recently-concluded Nvidia GTC conference and televised his program directly from there. Cramer said that there are many non-tech companies in partnership with Nvidia and keeping an eye on these companies could unlock huge opportunities for investors. Cramer believes these non-tech partners should “represent the best opportunities” since these companies usually stay under the radar.

Cramer often talks about mega-cap tech stocks like NVIDIA Corp (NASDAQ:NVDA), Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) that will grow because of AI. But in this article we decided to take a look at some of the lesser known and under-the-radar stocks Jim Cramer believes would grow thanks to the AI revolution.

Jim Cramer is excited about Getty Images Holdings Inc (NYSE:GETY) after the company revealed its partnership with Nvidia. Cramer recently admitted he hasn’t been a fan of Getty Images Holdings Inc (NYSE:GETY) in the past because the company became public via a SPAC. Most of the SPAC IPOs, according to Cramer, were “garbage.” However, Cramer said it’s time to open the books on Getty Images Holdings Inc (NYSE:GETY) since he believes Nvidia’s partnership could infuse a “life” in the stock.

9. Nextracker Inc (NASDAQ:NXT)

Number of Hedge Fund Investors: 33

Nextracker Inc (NASDAQ:NXT) is among the list of companies that are set to benefit from the rising demand of clean energy amid the AI-based data centers wave. Cramer thinks companies deploying massive data center resources for generative AI applications would need to power their systems via cheap energy, which should also be clean. Nextracker Inc (NASDAQ:NXT) provides solutions to enhance the efficiency of solar energy systems. That’s why Nextracker Inc (NASDAQ:NXT) is poised to benefit in the coming days.

Last month Nextracker Inc (NASDAQ:NXT) posted strong quarterly results. J.P. Morgan increased its price target on the stock to $73 from $61.

During its Q3 earnings call Nextracker Inc (NASDAQ:NXT) talked about data center-driven demand and opportunities:

“Over the last few years however, energy usage has increased dramatically driven by growth and data centers, electrification of appliances and transportation and reindustrialization across the United States. At the same time there has been a significant retirement of legacy power plants.

The combination of these factors has caused the U.S. Energy Information Administration to forecast a 5% annual increase need for new power generation capacity in the grid over the next five years. The result is that almost 300 gigawatts of new power plants are needed over the next five years and about 500 gigawatts of new power is needed over the next decade. Where is this massive amount of new power going will come from? The U.S. CIA historically very conservative on renewables is forecasting that solar and wind power will comprise the vast majority of new power generation. Solar is expected to have a 26% compound annual growth over the next five years and within 10 years be the number one source of electric generation in the United States comprising almost a quarter of all electric energy.

Naysayers point to the intermittency of renewable power as an impediment to its large scale adoption in the grid. We believe this issue will improve. Sharp decreases in battery costs have enable steep ramping of battery storage, power plants in the grid both co-located with renewable power and standalone project.”

Polen International Growth Strategy stated the following regarding Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT) in its fourth quarter 2023 investor letter:

“Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT) is the largest medical technology company in the world. Despite a few tough years characterized by post-COVID supply chain issues, Chinese market payment changes, and diabetes business challenges, the company has continued to invest aggressively in its R&D pipeline. Because of this long-term mindset and commitment to product innovation, the company is in a position today where it has numerous significant new product launches across the business, helping to accelerate growth and improve profitability. More recently, the market’s infatuation with the promise of GLP-1 drugs has resulted in valuation de-ratings across the medtech industry broadly, to which Medtronic was not immune. The combination of all of these factors has resulted in Medtronic shares trading at their lowest valuation in a decade. Given the emerging business momentum, we felt the valuation offers a compelling chance to increase our weight in the world’s largest medtech company.”
