  • For the next generation of apps, led by AI technologies, there are now several opportunities emerging. Many are from deep-pocketed companies that already provide back-end software services.

    For instance, Adobe (ADBE) is best known for its PDF reader. But the company provides a number of solutions for app providers. And they’re investing in AI technologies to benefit from them.

    It’s likely that will increase Adobe’s profitability, as their customers will pay more for built-in AI services, and avoid the cost of building out AI services in house. Adobe already has a 26 percent profit margin, and this could push it into the 30 percent range.

    Action to take: Adobe shares have already pushed to 52-week highs on the news of their AI development. Investors should look for a pullback under $450 as an entry point to start building a stake. At present, the company does not pay a dividend.
