Top 5 Tech Stocks 2019
1. Amazon – A globally dominating company.
To nobody’s surprise, Amazon is set to continue dominating the field during 2019. After hitting a trillion dollar market capitalization in August, Amazon’s growth slowed down a bit but it shouldn’t deter us. Besides the Amazon Web Service which has been driving a lot of the company’s growth this year, their newly launched advertisement service is expected to explode next year.
2. Microsoft – Should be included in any top 5 list
Microsoft is one of the most established brands in the tech sector, and they are not showing any signs of slowing down. In fact, Microsoft’s Azure is the only cloud service out there that has the potential of rivaling Amazon’s AWS. In fact, we are preparing for the epic race that will determine who will end up dominating the cloud computing space.
3. Baidu – The Chinese competitor to Google.
Baidu is the Chinese version of Google, and their forecast indicates great developments for 2019. However, the main reason we think this is a great stock to keep an eye on for investment purposes in 2019 is its relatively low price to value ratio. Baidu’s stock has been struggling quite a bit over the past couple of months but is showing signs that it’s about to rally which means it’s time to buy.
4. StoneCo – You might not have heard about this one
StoneCo is still a relatively new and unknown company in the tech sector, but we are still confident in their potential. This fintech company from Brazil has already attracted a ton of attention from major players in the game, namely Berkshire Hathaway and Alibaba, and that’s all we need to know to consider them for our top list for 2019. Also, the company revenue soared close to 100 percent in the first half of 2018 which is incredible, to say the least.
5. Adobe – An impressive year 2018, and 2019 is also looking promising
With an unparalleled selection of incredibly popular software that has never been more “in time” such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver, Adobe is not only a safe bet for 2019 but also a potentially highly lucrative investment opportunity. Additionally, this tech company has had an impressive year with great growth that will ripple into the new year.
