4 Trending Tech Stocks To Consider Buying [Or Avoiding] This Month
Tech stocks are still getting a lot of attention recently, for good reason. Tech companies have been the darlings of the stock market for quite a while now. This is not surprising given how vast the tech sector is. From gadget making to software developers and online services, tech is very broad. Any company that sells a product or service that is based on technology belongs to the sector. Many top tech stocks to watch have thrived over the past year as the pandemic has shifted many consumer trends. Companies like Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) have enjoyed explosive growth as more people turn to its e-commerce platform and streaming services during the pandemic.
Companies like Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) also saw a huge spike in their tech products and software. How will things fare out once we return to pre-pandemic times? One thing for sure is that things will no longer be the same. For instance, Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) said yesterday that the 9-to-5 workday is dead and it no longer expects employees to work an eight-hour shift to do their jobs successfully. This would indicate that the work-from-home culture will likely be here to stay even after the pandemic is over. This would certainly play well for the tech sector given how there will be sustained demand for its services in the months ahead. With that in mind, let us take a look at the top tech stocks that are trending in the stock market today.
