12 Best New Tech Stocks to Buy Now

In this article, we will be taking a look at the 12 best new tech stocks to buy now. To skip our discussion on the technology sector, you can go directly to the 5 Best New Tech Stocks to Buy Now.

The importance of the technology sector can be gauged by the fact that the top five companies in the S&P 500 Index are Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA). Except for the Austin, Texas-based electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, all the remaining companies presently have a market capitalization of $1 trillion. Numerous tech companies are not far behind, and as a result, the technology sector represents 28% of the S&P 500 Index. The weightage of the tech sector is more than the combined weightage of the consumer discretionary and healthcare sector.

Most of these tech companies have observed a significant rise in value since their IPO. For instance, the market capitalization of Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) at the time of its IPO in 2010 was around $2 billion. Since then, it has grown manifolds and currently stands at over $900 billion. It must be noted that on the first day of trading, the stock price of Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) rose 40% to close at $23.89. Fast forward one year and seven days, the stock price of Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) fell below its IPO price as investor sentiments overturned. However, as time passed, the company started to report operational and financial results that resulted in a humongous increase in stock price and, thus, strong returns for shareholders.

There have been concerns amongst the investors as some publicly listed tech companies took a serious beating in the market in the recent past. Some listed tech companies have lost as much as 70% of their value compared to the offer price as of September 2022. However, analysts remain bullish on the tech sector and believe that it has significant upside to offer to investors in the long run.
