The experts from “finder.com” asked ChatGPT to create a stock portfolio with at least 30 stocks that follows the investment principles of leading funds. The AI portfolio should include companies that are high quality, have low debt, sustainable growth and competitive assets. So the chatbot had to take a few parameters into account for an answer. Although ChatGPT was initially reluctant to name specific stocks and stressed that it could not provide individual investment advice, it was nonetheless quick to cooperate when told it was just a theoretical exercise.
As a result, ChatGPT assembled a hypothetical portfolio of 38 stocks that is quite impressive. The AI portfolio includes well-known companies such as Meta, Microsoft, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, Visa, Alphabet, Coca-Cola, Nestlé, Amazon, Adobe, Salesforce, Walmart, NVIDIA and Berkshire Hathaway. The performance of ChatGPT’s portfolio is also impressive: within the first two months after its composition on March 6, the basket of shares is up 4.9 percent. Over the same period, the S&P 500 was up only about 3%, while the UK’s most popular funds fared even worse.
