It appears so. Two days ago, Toyota ended its growth freeze when it announced that they'll be building 3 new plants one of them being a $1 Billion lab in Silicon Valley which will focus solely on developing artificial intelligence. Their objective is to develop [better] self-driving cars which are smarter and safer. When they are successful, this most obviously will boast their sales. What do you guys think? Would one make a killing a few years from now if they buy Toyota stocks now?
