Why Brokers are Betting Large on These 5 Tech Stocks

It’s no secret that this has been a HUGE tech-driven rally.

The Q2 earnings season basically confirmed what we suspected all along: that the pandemic has given an unprecedented push to the sector as companies of every shape and size are racing to increase their digital capabilities.

By some estimates, five years of tech spending have been pulled into the present, putting the tech sector on steroids. This is no mean feat when you consider the fact that they were already in various stages of preparedness for the eventuality of a tech-driven future.

With every wave of growth there have been an increasing number of naysayers, people who would rather play safe. But they’ve been accompanied by an equally big number of people unable to bet against it.

So there’s no time like now to go big on tech because the momentum is simply out of this world.

But of course, not all trades are about momentum. Sometimes, you come across attractive growth stocks too. And sometimes, they aren’t the big names everyone is hollering about. So you can quietly wait for the opportune time to jump.
