Software giant Microsoft invested $1 billion in OpenAI in 2019 as part of a partnership that made Microsoft Azure OpenAI’s exclusive cloud provider, and it announced a new multiyear, multibillion-dollar investment in OpenAI in January 2023. Microsoft integrated ChatGPT into its Bing search engine in February. Analyst Brad Sills says Microsoft’s guidance that AI will ramp up from being a 1% Azure growth tailwind in the fiscal fourth quarter to a 2% tailwind in the first quarter suggests AI workloads could soon contribute more meaningfully to overall growth. Therefore, Microsoft stock is a good investment long term due to future AI revenue growth.
