  • Enablers: NVIDIA Corp. NVDA, Marvell Technology Group Ltd. MRVL, and CrowdStrike Holdings Inc. CRWD
  • Hyperscalers: Microsoft Corporation MSFT, Alphabet Inc. GOOG GOOGL, and Amazon.com Inc. AMZN

Goldman Sachs: AI To Boost Productivity, Profit Margins

According to Goldman Sachs, AI will significantly boost labor productivity, leading to enhanced corporate revenues and, in some instances, improved margins due to reduced labor costs.

In a note shared Tuesday, equity analysts Ryan Hammond and David J. Kostin unveiled a long-term AI basket that comprises 50 stocks with the potential to outperform the broader market over the coming years.

"We expect AI adoption will likely begin to have a meaningful macro impact sometime between 2025 and 2030," Goldman Sachs wrote.

The bank’s analysis indicates that following widespread AI adoption, the median stock within their basket could witness an impressive 72% increase in earnings per share (EPS), compared to a 19% rise for the median stock in the Russell 1000 index.
