These Tech Stocks Continue To Gain Traction Among Investors This Month
Tech stocks continue to show promise as we begin the week. As treasury yields begin to dip, this could provide a tailwind for tech stocks. Last Friday, the Fed announced that its temporary pandemic-era rule that relaxed bank capital requirements will not be extended after March 31. That offset the positive effect of stabilizing bond yields, which then spiked on the news. Tech companies like Luminar Technologies (NASDAQ: LAZR) and Kopin Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN) have shown gains of over 10% since Friday’s opening bell. Could Treasury yields stabilizing be a sign that bodes well for the tech sector?
Given the resilience that tech stocks have shown in the last year, tech companies are likely here to stay. We have gotten highly dependent on the plethora of tech products and services available after all. For instance, most of our shopping needs can be done via Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) or Shopify (NYSE: SHOP). Furthermore, with the third round of stimulus checks being mailed out or deposited into many American’s accounts, this could further bump the tech sector. All things considered, here is a list of top tech stocks to consider buying this week.
