Are These The Best Tech Stocks To Buy Today?

While the broader stock market today appears to be on the decline, investors may want to consider tech stocks. After all, investors focusing on renewed pandemic-related restrictions worldwide seem to be driving markets lower now. With rising coronavirus cases globally, it would make sense that pandemic winners are once again in the spotlight. Accordingly, this would be where the tech industry and tech stocks come into play. Throughout the early stages of the pandemic, tech firms such as Zoom (NASDAQ: ZM) and CrowdStrike (NASDAQ: CRWD) thrived. This is understandable given the sudden surge in demand for their offerings as organizations focus on digital acceleration.

Notably, Zoom’s head of Asia Pacific operations Ricky Kapur recently said, “The numbers tell us that customers are still investing and continuing to invest in Zoom post-pandemic.” Overall, Kapur sees an ongoing shift towards hybrid work environments, regardless of the current pandemic conditions.

At the same time, consumer tech firms like AT&T (NYSE: T) continue to gain attention from investors as well. As of earlier today, Barclays analyst Kannan Venkateshwar is upgrading T stock from a Neutral rating to Overweight. Additionally, the analyst also hit it with a price target of $30. Venkateshwar cites AT&T’s position amidst increasingly relevant wireless trends among other catalysts as potential growth factors in 2022. All in all, tech companies have and continue to make waves in the stock market. Could the current dips in stock present good buying opportunities for investors now?

Top Tech Stocks To Buy [Or Sell] This Week

Oracle Corporation

First up, we will be taking a look at the Oracle Corporation. For the uninitiated, Oracle is a multinational computer tech firm. Namely, it is among the largest software companies globally in terms of revenue and market capitalization. Should pandemic conditions continue to worsen worldwide, demand for Oracle’s offerings could rise accordingly. This could be the case given Oracle’s comprehensive suite of secure applications and autonomous infrastructure solutions. Now, with ORCL stock currently up by over 45% year-to-date, investors may be wondering if the company’s shares have more room to run.

By and large, Oracle does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon on the operational front. As of today, the company is acquiring health care tech firm Cerner (NASDAQ: CERN). At the moment, current estimates point towards a $30 billion deal between the two firms. The all-cash deal values Cerner at about $95 per share. In theory, Oracle is significantly bolstering the health care-related capabilities of its cloud services through this deal. Given the massive reach and current relevance of Cerner’s medical records tech services, this would be a win for Oracle. With all that said, will you be adding ORCL stock to your portfolio anytime soon?

Smaller loan amounts can help borrowers recover from short-term setbacks. This would help them avoid paying exorbitant interest rates from payday lenders that can quickly turn into cycles of debt.
