Over the past decade, tech stocks have been the bull of the stock market. Stocks like Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft were among the fast-growth stocks of that period.
And that has not changed today. Tech still leads the way. Tech still drives the market. And Tech is still king.
The tech space in itself is broad, and there are different sectors with different growth trajectories, with the fast growing and most promising tech stocks being cloud computing stocks, SaaS stocks, artificial intelligence stocks, self-driving stocks and 5g stocks, among few others.
This year, amidst the pandemic-driven market crash, the major winners have been unsurprisingly tech stocks. The likes of Zoom, Telsa, Amazon and Apple, all of which are tech stocks, were among the major winners in this year’s market so far.
The tech space holds lots of promise for growth seeking investors, and if there is one space to put in your money and expect exponential growth, it will be the technology space.
