Best Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now Amid The Dip
Tech stocks continue their bumpy ride for the sixth week. Rising Treasury yields have brought renewed pressure to equities with lofty valuations. Given how President Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan was approved in the Senate over the weekend, it could face a vote in the House as early as Tuesday. Could stimulus checks in people’s bank accounts propel growth in the U.S. stock market? Or would that increase the odds of inflation, putting further pressure on stocks?
The resilience top tech stocks have shown over the last year is no fluke. As demand for tech products and services rose, so did the valuation of the sector. Tech is likely to stay as we have gotten accustomed to these tech products and services. Tech companies like Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Shopify (NYSE: SHOP) are still up by over 100% in the last year. Could the current circumstances of the tech sector be an opportunity for investors to buy on the dip? All things considered, here is a list of top tech stocks to consider buying in March.
