C3.ai delivering artificial intelligence for all industries
As more of the economy transitions into the digital realm, a growing number of companies will find themselves with access to game-changing tech like artificial intelligence. In the second quarter of fiscal 2022, C3.ai said it was serving 14 different industries, double the amount from the corresponding quarter in the previous year. It indicates that more sectors are already proactively seeking the benefits of AI.

One of those sectors is oil and gas, which represents the largest portion of C3.ai's total revenue. The company has a long-standing partnership with oil giant $BKR. Together, the two companies have developed a suite of AI applications to predict critical equipment failures and reduce carbon emissions in drilling and production operations. Shell is a core customer of these applications, and it's using them to monitor 10,000 devices and 23 large-scale oil assets, with the technology processing 1.3 trillion predictions per month.

In the recent Q3 of fiscal 2022, C3.ai revealed a new partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense worth $500 million over the next five years. It's designed to accelerate the adoption of AI applications across the defense segment of the federal government.

But some of C3.ai's most impressive partnerships are those with tech behemoths like $MSFT and $GOOGL. They're collaborating with C3.ai to deploy AI applications in the cloud to better serve their customers in manufacturing, healthcare, and financial services, among other industries.
I own shares. Quite upside down on my cost basis at the moment but I think $AI has great potential and these partnerships really bolstered my conviction. Do you know of any other "pure-play" AI opportunities in the market?

Upcoming Earnings Calendar (Jan 17-21th)
Hey guys! Here's next week's upcoming earnings calendar!

The most important thing I'm interested in is if there's a change of character relative to the past earnings season. Growth stocks got hammered last time. Hopefully this quarter the worst has been priced in and companies are evaluated on their actual results.

Some other things I'm interested in:
  • $PG - Are sales numbers still strong? Has supply chain inflation persisted?
  • $NFLX - Streaming trends over the past quarter. (I hold $ROKU and a bit of $FUBO)
  • $UAL and $AAL - Comments on the Omicron variant and corporate travel demand.
  • $PNC $BAC $KEY - Insights on the economy. December retail sales were down, so we'll see if banks also point to weak consumers.

What are you guys interested in?
