5 Dirt-Cheap Tech Stocks With Explosive Earnings Growth

Source

Technology, which was the most-loved sector amid the pandemic and proved its resilience, has lost its momentum lately on surging yields. Notably, 10-year Treasury yields spiked to the highest level of 1.61% in a year, after remaining below 1% for most of 2020.

This is especially true as higher yields make stocks, especially the high-growth ones, less attractive as these lower stock market valuations. After a solid surge last year, tech stocks’ valuation has risen to lofty levels. The big tech companies reported big profits last year driven by an e-commerce surge. Now, with the pandemic seemingly ending with faster vaccination rollout, consumers can return to pre-pandemic habits, thereby hurting the sector’s performance.

Additionally, Tesla’s (TSLA) crazy rally, which powered most of the technology sector last year, has fizzled out. The stock has plunged 25% and lost about $200 billion in market value since Feb 8 when the electric-car firm said that it had spent $1.5 billion on bitcoin in a bid to boost returns on cash.

However, the beaten down price might be a good entry point for investors following Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s testimony. The Fed pledged to continue supporting the economy by keeping interest rates low and said that inflation would remain in control. Powell said that higher bond yields reflect economic optimism and not inflation fears. This might reassure investors, making beaten-down stock prices attractive at the current levels.

Further, the outlook for the tech sector remains solid given that the global digital shift that has accelerated e-commerce for everything, ranging from remote working to entertainment and shopping. The rapid adoption of cloud computing, big data, Internet of Things, wearables, VR headsets, drones, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, machine learning, digital communication and 5G technology will continue to drive the sector higher.
