Technology stocks with highest buy ratings originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Technology fascinates us all also if we are not a real techie who wants the latest stuff whatever it costs.
Technology stocks also made many people very rich. Some of the wealthiest and youngest persons in this world made their wealth on the internet or in related industries. I don't talk about the Page brothers from Google, Facebook's Zuckerberg or Bill Gates.
This alone is a reason why we should observe the technology sector because there is a huge potential of growth at limited cots. Today, I like to proceed with my January research of the most recommended stocks and I do this at the technology sector.
Below is a small list with some fundamentals about tech stocks with the highest buy rating. I excluded stocks with a market capitalization below USD 2 billion because I think the risk should be much higher as for mid-capitalized stocks.
These are the results: Eleven of the best to buy rated stocks pay dividends; nine have a strong buy rating.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 24.43 and forward P/E ratio is 20.50. The dividend yield has a value of 1.13 percent.
