Tech Stocks To Watch

The technology sector is vast, comprising of gadget makers, software developers, wireless providers, streaming services, semiconductor companies, and cloud computing providers.

Hardware Companies

These design and build devices such as:

  • Personal computers
  • Smartphones
  • Fitness trackers
  • Smart speakers
  • Enterprise equipment like servers and networking gear

Software Companies

These design the software that runs on hardware, such as:

  • Operating systems
  • Databases
  • Cybersecurity software
  • Productivity software

Software companies are increasingly moving to a software-as-a-service model where customers buy a subscription to a program instead of a one-time license. This generates recurring revenue for the software company.

Powering all that hardware are semiconductor chips. Semiconductor companies design and/or manufacture central processing units, graphics processing units, memory chips, and a wide variety of other chips that help to run today’s devices.

Telecom companies that provide wireless services are part of the tech sector. So are the video streaming companies that provide easy access to high-quality content, and so are the cloud computing providers that power those streaming services.
