Could These Top Tech Stocks Be Worth Investing In?
For investors looking for the most active stocks today, tech stocks could be in their sights. After all, the tech industry as a whole appears to be on the recovery in the stock market today. If anything, the growth story in tech remains the same. This is because tech companies will likely continue to innovate and compete, such is the nature of tech today. Not only would this benefit organizations and investors alike, but it would also accelerate the adoption of new technologies globally. Could this be enough to warrant investors taking advantage of the current weakness in the sector?
Well, like it or not, the world today is heavily reliant on tech. For example, we could look at the personal computer company Dell (NYSE: DELL). Just this week, Dell saw earnings of $2.13 a share, well above consensus projections of $1.61. The company cites strong demand for its desktops and laptops throughout the quarter for this performance. Indeed, the consumer tech industry continues to power on regardless of the state of the world.
Meanwhile, the booming cybersecurity industry is also making headlines today. This is because of Microsoft’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) latest blog post regarding the infamous SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI) hack. Essentially, Microsoft believes that the Russian hackers responsible have just launched another major cyberattack on over 150 organizations worldwide. As such, the need for tech as a means of defense in this modern age is greater than ever. No doubt, as the importance of tech continues to expand, tech stocks could become a more viable bet for investors. With that in mind, here are five top tech stocks in the stock market now.
