Meta (NASDAQ:META) is a tech conglomerate of social media platforms. With the help of Llama 3, the company’s AI helper, Meta AI, has advanced significantly.

The release of 8 billion and 70 billion parameter models — among the finest in their class — as well as the continuous training of a 400+ billion parameter model serve as proof of this technical advance.

By integrating AI capabilities into popular platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, WhatsApp and Messenger, Meta ensures that its 3.24 billion daily active people (DAP) user base keeps growing and gets more involved with its services.

Additionally, AI is driving significant increases in engagement across all of Meta’s platforms. AI recommendation algorithms offer over 30% of the content in Facebook feeds, a twofold increase over the last two years. Most remarkably, AI recommends more than 50% of the posts on Instagram.

Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) is a global technology leader through its subsidiary Google. The company’s focus on expediting innovation and simplifying AI research is reflected in the strategic grouping of AI teams under Google DeepMind. Alphabet’s AI strength is demonstrated by the latest Gemini model improvements, most notably the Gemini 1.5 Pro. This model has the biggest context window of any large-scale foundation model to date, thanks to notable efficiency improvements, especially in extended context comprehension. Compared to eighteen months ago, Alphabet’s new AI models and algorithms are more than 100 times more efficient.

A core component of Alphabet’s AI approach is its infrastructure. This is based on a history of creating compelling, safe and high-performing data centers. These data centers provide previously unheard-of efficiency gains and are designed to train state-of-the-art AI models. The company’s increasing CapEx is a reflection of its infrastructure investment. This facilitates the proliferation of AI advances throughout its product line and the growth of its cloud services.

Lastly, three billion Android devices and nearly two billion monthly users are among the six goods owned by Alphabet as of Q1 2024. Overall, Alphabet’s strategic dominance in AI research positions it on the stocks to buy list.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) designs, manufactures and sells consumer electronics, software and online services. With $90.8 billion in revenue for the March quarter, the corporation demonstrated its strong financial performance. The firm set sales records in over a dozen countries and regions. This includes substantial growth in growing areas, including Latin America, the Middle East and Indonesia, despite a 4% annual drop.

Additionally, Apple’s strategy of capitalizing on high-growth regions reflects its development into various geographical markets, augmenting its worldwide revenue base. Strong market penetration and high customer demand for Apple products reflect these regions’ capacity to set all-time revenue records.

Moreover, with a 14% rise YOY, Apple’s services division recorded an all-time sales record of $23.9 billion. The company’s effective transition to service-based income streams, which provide larger margins than hardware sales, reflects this rise. There is increased consumer interaction with Apple’s ecosystem, fueled by products like Apple TV+, Apple Music and the App Store, reflected in the growth in service revenue.

Finally, Apple’s robust financial performance, driven by record revenues from diverse global markets and a thriving services segment, solidifies its position on the stocks to buy list.
