When it comes to tech stocks, most investors think bigger is better. They believe the FANGs or dot-com survivors such as Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Cisco(NASDAQ:CSCO) are the way to go in the sector. And there is some truth to that feeling. After all, these giants still produce billions in revenues, cash flows and profits. Heck, some of these giant tech stocks even pay hefty dividends these days.
However, bigger may not be better. This is especially true when it comes to tech stocks.
The truth is, the big boys aren’t the always the ones dominating their respective technology subsectors. In fact, there are many small- and mid-cap tech stocks that are the leaders. Moreover, they offer a bigger opportunity to find above-average growth in both revenues and profits. And they are able to grow their share prices much faster than the bigger tech stocks as well. After all, doubling a $1 billion market cap is much easier than a $1 trillion one.
