Artificial intelligence (AI) is the key to self-driving cars. Now, AI might sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, but we've been using it in the real world for some time now.Source: Shutterstock In 2015, AI-powered AlphaGo defeated a human being in the Chinese game of Go. And back in 2001, robots beat humans in simulated financial trading competitions. Today, there are tons of uses for AI. And self-driving cars are only part of the reason AI stocks have skyrocketed in price.There's another reason for the high price tags on some AI stocks. The companies themselves were already established players in other industries. For example, Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) made a name for itself long before there was any talk of self-driving cars. And Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) was making graphics cards for computer gaming systems over a decade before it entered the autonomous vehicles world.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWith stocks like these already driving market prices higher, what's a thrifty investor to do? Well, one solution is to bypass tech companies and invest in car companies like Volkswagen AG/ADR (OTCMKTS:VWAPY) or Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F).Each of these companies are already testing self-driving alternatives. And both companies' stocks are currently under $20. But investing in an established automotive corporation doesn't have the same profit potential as today's high-tech opportunities.So, let's take a look at two under-the-radar AI stocks for you to invest in today: Two AI Stocks Profiting From Self-Driving CarsAmbarella Inc (NASDAQ:AMBA): If you know this name, it's probably from the company's relationship with GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO). Ambarella's processors were instrumental in the development of the GoPro Hero line camera. But while the action camera world was taking off, Ambarella was quietly equipping the car world with dash cams. Now, the company is leveraging over 20 years of research to help it deliver the 360-degree surround view cameras serving as "eyes" on autonomous vehicles.Plus, this past July, Korean car manufacturer Hyundai Mobis Co., LTD. announced it's using Ambarella's A9AQ Automotive SoC in its cars. And that means Ambarella is in the process right now of building out its automotive market portfolio. Maybe, that's why the stock is still only trading at around $52 per share. And this makes AMBA worthy of consideration as a long-term play.Aptiv PLC (NYSE:APTV): In 2015, Aptiv's Smart Vehicle Architecture allowed one of its vehicles to complete the first ever coast-to-coast drive of an autonomous car. The car went all the way from San Francisco to New York City. Now, that's a whopping 3,400 miles of successfully navigating the road. Pretty impressive stuff. Plus, the vehicle did all this with a "brain" and "nervous system" designed by Aptiv.That success, however, brings this company's stock price up to about $90 per share. Now, that's still a bargain considering how much many high-tech innovators can cost. Not to mention, on Oct. 30, the company reported earnings.APTV had an increase in revenue of 2%, up to $3.6 billion. It reported net income of $246 million. That's up from $222 million in the third quarter of 2018.And it produced net cash flow from operating activities of $325 million. That dwarfs the previous year's total of $138 million for the same quarter. Of course, this happened as the GM labor strike occurred.All in all, APTV is putting up some pretty impressive numbers. But There Are Even More Uses for AISelf-driving cars are only the tip of the iceberg, however, when it comes to AI. This innovation has so many personal and commercial uses. It's going to revolutionize our world. That means there are multiple ways to profit from it. And my friend and Growth Investor Editor, Louis Navellier, wants to reveal some of his favorites to you today.Source: Shutterstock In this special segment, Louis is going to show you many of the ins and outs of the artificial intelligence revolution.He's going to unveil what it takes to profit from it.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 01, 2019 -- Ambarella, Inc., (NASDAQ: AMBA), a leading developer of low-power and high-resolution human and computer vision solutions, today announced.
Cypress Semiconductor (CY) reports strong third-quarter results, wherein earnings and revenues beat the respective Zacks Consensus Estimate.
While trade-sensitive tech stocks will gain as phase-one negotiation is progressing well, rate cut hopes will drive capital intensive utility stocks.
The technology sector is hardly worried about the persistent slowdown in smartphone and computer demand. Even though these sectors are mature, the need for more storage, computing power, and connectivity among all devices will still increase.Meanwhile, the ever-increasing computing power in automobiles gives technology companies newfound growth opportunities. As automobiles add more features powered by technology and as autonomous capabilities reach their potential, investors cannot ignore this trend.Advanced driver-assistance systems (or ADAS) technology employs such solutions as AI-based applications, active driver monitoring, and blind-spot detection. As the low latency 5G rolls out, these vehicles may connect to the cloud to call on intelligent features or to run analytics.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsFor the investor, finding stocks that will benefit from the surge in ADAS requires balance. Some stocks are priced with high P/E multiples in anticipation of the explosive growth ahead. But if automobile manufacturers are on-track to offer ADAS and governments allow them on the street, these suppliers will enjoy strong revenue growth. * 7 AI Stocks to Buy to Profit from the Recent Tech Correction In no particular order, here are seven autonomous vehicle stocks to hold to drive you to the future. Ambarella (AMBA)Source: Sundry Photography / Shutterstock.com Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA) enjoyed expanding sales in both the professional and consumer markets for IP security cameras. Designing its CVflow SoCs in the next generation of AI cameras is paying off. But its bigger ambitions are in the automotive market. In July, Hyundai Mobis said it would use Ambarella's A9AQ Automotive SoC.The company is seeing an increased interest in its computer vision SoCs for commercial vehicles. Ambarella's CVflow solution enables vehicles to have both active driver monitoring and blind-spot detection. Multiple providers in Asia and the U.S. selected its CVflow solution in the second quarter.Ambarella forecasts a realization in CV revenue in the current third quarter. It raised its Q3/2020 revenue above the Street consensus from $63 million to $67 million. The automotive segment will lead to the sequential increase. This strong segment will offset the volatility in consumer electronics. As the company expects a decline in the percentage of consumer electronics revenue in the next two to three years, automotive will fill that void.Getting CVs in automotive is still a longer-term story, so investors interested in holding AMBA stock should have a long-term time horizon. So, getting traction for its CVs first in the recorder business will follow with the chip's adoption in the cabin monitor, drive monitor, and e-mirror space.On the risk side, Hangzhou Hikvision, a video surveillance product supplier, getting blacklisted by the Trump administration on Oct. 7 could cause Ambarella to lower its near-term revenue forecast. Dahua, its second-biggest customer, is also on the list. This setback pulled the stock lower and creates an entry point for investors who missed the last rally. Intel (INTC)Source: Pavel Kapysh / Shutterstock.com Intel's (NASDAQ:INTC) Mobileye broke ground at the Jerusalem plant and once the facility is completed, will have 50,000 square meters. Even though it won't be ready until 2022, Intel is already enjoying growth in the autonomous driving market.In the second quarter, the combined IoTG and Mobileye business grew 22% year-on-year. Mobileye's revenue and operating margin rose 16% and 20%, respectively. Penetration in autonomous driving lifted the unit's results in the second quarter. The strong results offset weakness in Intel's core businesses. And when its memory business revenue fell 13% due to oversupply of NAND, the company needed continued market share growth in autonomous driving to keep investors happy.Since Mobileye was acquired in 2017, the business grew by over 30% CAGR. The unit continues to build its market leadership. This year, it had 20 new design wins. It touts Nissan ProPILOT 2.0 and NIO's (NASDAQ:NIO) pilot vehicles starting vehicle productions with Intel's Mobileye base L2+ systems. This gives hands-free assisted driving technology. The company will continue growing revenue as it progresses in Level four and Level five autonomy. * 7 Top-Notch REITs to Buy for Income Mobileye's cloud of data is impressive. It processed 1.5 million kilometers of cloud data sent from BMW and mapped 94% of the German autobahn and motorway network. This valuable data gives Intel an edge in the ADAS space. As accurate map data becomes highly sought across multiple sectors, the company will find a way to monetize this information. General Motors (GM)Source: Katherine Welles / Shutterstock.com GM (NYSE:GM) investors are still weighing on the impact the UAW contract will have on results. GM conceded to investing $7.7 billion in U.S. factories. This will save or create 9,000 jobs.Wages will rise 3% in two years and workers get a 4% bonus in the two following years. As such, GM's positioning in self-driving and electric cars become strategically more important to sustain profits.GM's Cruise Automation earned another $1.5 billion in investments in May. Last year in May, the self-driving division announced a $2.25 billion investment from Softbank. The car manufacturer wants to get ahead of the competition in developing robot cars. But in July, GM Cruise Automation delayed its robotaxi service. It offered no timeline on how much longer customers will have to wait. Its CEO said the unit needs more test miles for driverless development vehicles. And it will ramp up testing and validation throughout the rest of the year.With Cruise having investments from institutional investors, such as Softbank, Honda, and T. Rowe Price, it has plenty of cash on hand to fund research and development.Current Cadillac owners will have another 70,000 miles of compatible road supporting hands-free driver assistance technology. Its new digital vehicle platform will "integrate our electric propulsion systems, cybersecurity protection, advanced Active Safety systems; and Super Cruise technology."In the second quarter, Cruise's costs were $300 million. It is on track to spend $1 billion in the full year as it increases headcount. The unit had 1,500 employees and will have 2,000 by the end of the year. NXP Semiconductors (NXPI)Source: Lukassek / Shutterstock.com NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ:NXPI) is focused on radar solutions for level 2 and level 3 ADAS vehicles. Initial features will facilitate automatic emergency braking. As new cases emerge, such as adaptive cruise control, lane change assistance, cross-traffic alerts, and blind-spot detection, auto manufacturers will lean on NXP for such solutions.Last year, radar accounted for 10% of the company's auto revenues. As the number one supplier for complete radar subsystems, having more customer orders will lead to the company having a solid 20% of the overall radar market.NXP's secure UWB fine ranging chipset gives secure and real-time ranging technology. It allows for the coexistence with existing radio technologies. Applications will have the ability to process contextual information. This includes the UWB anchor position, its movements, and the distance to other devices. Its accuracy is incredible, having precision within just a few centimeters. * 7 Stocks to Buy With 100% Upside Potential In the second quarter, automotive revenue fell 10% year-on-year to $1.03 billion. And even though car production, especially in China and Europe, is trending lower, ADAS, and radar, in particular, is offsetting that decline. In the third quarter, NXP expects automotive will be up in the low-single digits sequentially. NXPI stock rallied in anticipation of management guiding on a stronger second-half performance compared to the first half. At 15.4 times P/E, the stock is inexpensive relative to its future growth. Lyft (LYFT)Source: OpturaDesign / Shutterstock.com Lyft's (NASDAQ:LYFT) CEO declaring profitability a year before analyst expectations, in Q4/2021, sent the stock higher on Oct. 22. Though bears are still in control with LYFT stock holding a 10.18% short float position, valuation concerns may be coming to an end. Still, investors need a 2-3 year timeframe because profitability is still two years away. Lyft will probably cut costs and lower headcount while raising rates to narrow losses in the core business.In the second quarter, Lyft reported revenue growing 72% Y/Y to $867 million. R&D as a percentage will trend higher next quarter by 1%, to 15% as Lyft invests in its core platform, new strategic initiatives and its autonomous feature.It has two major initiatives in autonomous vehicles. One is its open platform strategy, which should drive adaption as partners join. For example, the first vehicles from the Waymo platform are live in the Phoenix area. Its partnership with Aptiv continues to flourish. The companies completed over 50,000 rides on the Aptiv platform in Las Vegas.In the first phase of self-driving cars, Lyft will roll them out to its ridesharing platform. Then, it will start testing self-driving using all the camera data is collected from the Lyft platform.Lyft forecasts revenue in the range of $3.275 - $3.3 billion in FY2019. Adjusted EBITDA will be in the range of negative $1.175 to negative $1.150 billion. Looking beyond this year, if Lyft's margins expand to the positive mid-single digits, investors have a reason to accumulate LYFT stock at these levels. Uber Technologies (UBER)Source: BigTunaOnline / Shutterstock.com Uber (NYSE:UBER) investors faced two negative headwinds that sent the stock lower in recent weeks. The company proposed a $750 million senior notes offering. UBER said it "intends to use the proceeds from this offering primarily to fund a portion of the purchase price in connection with the closing of Uber's pending acquisition of Careem Inc." Uber paid Careem to acquire $3.1 billion. On its balance sheet and not including the $1.8 billion in restricted cash, Uber had $11.74 billion in cash and cash equivalents as of June 30.News that Uber laid off 350 employees will lower operating costs, but bullish investors will question its future growth with a smaller staff. Despite the worries, Uber's investments in autonomous cars will eventually pay off. During the second quarter, the company unveiled its first production car capable of self-driving. Volvo's newest XC90 SUV is set to integrate into ATG's self-driving system for Uber.Next month, Uber will start testing self-driving cars in Dallas, Texas. Drivers will operate the vehicles initially, collecting mapping data and capturing driving scenarios. Uber engineers will reproduce the latter information in simulations. But fully autonomous driving will not happen immediately following these tests. The company will need to first test the self-driving features on the Volvo vehicle first. And this time, it will test the multiple redundant backup systems. * 10 Hot Pot Stocks to Buy Investors should be aware that short-term results were unfavorable. In the second quarter, Uber reported revenue of $3.2 billion, up 14% from last year. It lost $4.72 (GAAP EPS), due mostly to $3.9 billion worth of stock-based compensation charges. For 2019, Uber forecasts growth of 31% to 35% year-over-year, with revenue in the range of $65 billion to $67 billion. APTV (APTV)Source: Shutterstock Aptiv (NYSE:APTV) continues to win new customer awards, lifting its broad portfolio. Since 2016, bookings in active safety topped $11 billion while bookings were $18.9 billion from engineered components. In the second quarter, the advanced safety and user experience unit grew 13% above the market average. And as Aptiv applies sensing, software, and centralized computing, investors in autonomous driving markets will benefit from holding APTV stock.In the second quarter, sales in active safety grew 53%, above the estimated 45% FY 2019 level. Growth topped 30% over the market in China. With APTV stock at 52-week highs, investors are not worried over the U.S.-China trade war hurting results. The growth in the active safety segment more than offset a drag from Aptiv's planned rollout of its display audio product line and infotainment launch.Aptiv is balancing the costs of short-term margin pressure versus longer-term opportunities in widening its growth in active safety. But with scalable solutions, the revenue growth prospects are enormous. The company said:And as you know, a number of these advance active safety programs that we're talking about the scalable level one, level 2 plus, level 3 minus that our global for global are complex programs, but the opportunity to be awarded those programs and to be awarded at the right sort of margin rate and expand our competitive moat, you know is something that we'll have to evaluate versus the near-term investment resources to launch and develop those programs.The ADAS market has strong profit margins ahead that will offset declines from mobility. And as Aptiv continues its investment cycle, especially in complex programs, investors will benefit in the long-term.Author owns shares of NXPI.
