Are These The Best Growth Stocks To Buy For 2022?

While the broader stock market today continues to look for direction, investors may want to consider consumer tech stocks. For the most part, this would be due to the ever-growing demand for what the industry offers. This ranges from your typical smartphone to cutting-edge smart home technology. Like it or not, the world of consumer tech has and continues to evolve and thrive amidst the current volatility in consumer markets.

As of earlier today, the latest U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) figures are now out. The country’s GDP increased by an annualized rate of 2.3% during the July through September quarter. By and large, the upwards revision to the GDP likely came as personal consumption soared by 2%. However, this represents a notable dip from the previous quarter’s 6.7% GDP hike overall. Additionally, another key metric to note in the stock market now would be the core personal consumption expenditures index’s latest reading. It rose by 4.6% quarter-over-quarter, improving from the previous quarter’s 5.9%. In theory, the data suggests that consumers are getting better prices on goods and services while increasing their consumption overall.  

For instance, we could look at the likes of Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN). Just yesterday, GRPN stock received a major positive update from Prescience Point. The firm currently argues that the fintech is “significantly undervalued”, suggesting a price range between $63 and $98 per share. Elsewhere, with even government bodies getting hacked in this technological age, consumers could be considering cybersecurity services as well. As a result, consumers and investors alike could be turning to leading names like CrowdStrike (NASDAQ: CRWD). As such, could one of these top consumer tech players be worth watching right now?

Best Growth Stocks To Buy [Or Sell] Now

Apple Inc.

First up, we have Apple, a multinational tech company that specializes in consumer electronics, software, and tech services. The company is one of the largest information technology companies in the world and also one of the most valuable. The company essentially revolutionized personal tech with the introduction of its premium Apple products like the iPhone, iMacs, and AirPods. AAPL stock is up by over 30% in the past year.

On Tuesday, rating agency Moody’s upgraded Apple’s long-term credit rating to “AAA”, with a stable outlook, citing the company’s exceptional liquidity and robust earnings. Through this upgrade, Apple now joins an elite club of companies that include Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) that have been given Moody’s highest rating. Moody’s analyst Raj Joshi says that ‘Apple’s very strong business profile’ reflects its substantial operating scale, a large installed base of products and users of its services, strong customer loyalty, and premium brand positioning.

Also, Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) analyst Katy Huberty wrote that iPhone production could surprise towards the upside this quarter as lead times are declining to more normalized levels. She also cites a handful of data points that the firm has seen over the past month to support her case. Additionally, Huberty notes that lead times for Apple’s high-end iPhone 13 models, the Pro and Pro Max are at 2 days as of December 21, down from 20 days a month ago. With that in mind, is AAPL stock a top consumer tech stock to buy right now?

Qualcomm Inc.

Last but not least, we have Qualcomm, the world’s leading wireless technology innovator. It is also one of the key players in the development and expansion of 5G connectivity. The company claims that its foundational technologies enable the mobile ecosystem and are found in nearly every 4G and 5G smartphone. QCOM stock has gained over 33% in the past six months.

Even so, Qualcomm does not seem to be slowing its roll anytime soon. After having launched its cutting-edge Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor chip earlier this month, it is reportedly already working on the next iteration of the tech. Should this be the case, we could be looking at the release of the second generation of this high-end system-on-a-chip for flagship smartphones as early as next year.

Last month, the company also announced new growth targets and financial guidance through 2024. In particular, it will be expanding its chipset business to meet the growing opportunities for its technology. Furthermore, Qualcomm expects its addressable opportunity to grow from approximately $100 billion today, to $700 billion in the next decade. This comes as the world becomes increasingly connected through the devices that Qualcomm powers. One example would be its automotive revenues that Qualcomm expects to grow to approximately $3.5 billion in five years and approximately $8 billion in 10 years. With this piece of information, is QCOM stock a buy today?
