Lately, artificial intelligence stocks have spiked interest among investors from varied businesses. With major organisations already providing AI stocks, smaller and newer companies are also venturing in this area. The reason AI is picking up among the stockholder circles is because of the advantages it offers. It has progressed sharply from what it used to be in the earlier days and is simplifying businesses. Be it autonomous driving or smart electronic gadgets, there have been more ups than downs in the AI sector on the whole.
When it comes to a solid investment through stocks and shares, investors mostly rely on blue chip stocks in the long run. This is because blue chip stocks tend to fluctuate less in the market and provide stable gains. Unlike traditional stocks, the dividend is high if the companies are financially growing well. However, on the downside, they are expensive and generally yield lower returns.
In this article, we outline top non-blue chip stocks in AI that are worth investing at the end of the day.

Publicly listed in the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), Yext’s plans for an all-round AI implementation (such as voice search) in its services makes it an ideal non-blue chip stock to invest in. With stock rated at $24 right now, it might see a soar in the coming days in the NYSE market.
