Trending Tech Stocks To Keep An Eye On


According to the vast majority of seasoned investors, the year 2020 was a banner year for technology-related stocks. Because of the pandemic, individuals and businesses were essentially compelled to adopt digital technologies. As a result, there has been a significant increase in demand for software and hardware services across the board. As we near the end of the year 2021, investors may want to take a second look at similar industry trends. This would occur as a result of the emergence of the Omicron Covid variant, which is a variant of the Omicron. It is estimated that the highly mutated variant is already present in more than 20 countries, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House's chief medical advisor


While health experts assess the threat posed by the new variant to global recovery efforts, investors may be concentrating on the top technology stocks on the market at the time of writing. For starters, the industry has maintained its excellent performance throughout this earnings season. Take, for example, Box (NYSE: BOX) and Ambarella (NYSE: AMB) (NASDAQ: AMBA). During their respective quarterly earnings calls held yesterday, both companies reported earnings beats. Therefore, BOX and AMBA stock prices are currently trading higher by more than 10% as of 10:24 a.m. Eastern Time (ET). Both businesses are engaged in different industries, for the most part. This is evident in the development of cloud-based software solutions by Box as well as the design of semiconductors by Ambarella. Nonetheless, both businesses are associated with the technology sector, which appears to be gaining momentum at the moment. So, are any of these technology stocks on your shortlist for your next big investment?

"Our customers as well as Microsoft have benefited greatly from the digital transformation of the past year, there is no doubt about that! Although it has increased our responsibility in a world where technology must do more to address the pressing issues we face collectively, it has also increased our awareness of our own responsibilities "Microsoft's Chairman and CEO, Satya Nadella, made the statement.

Additionally, it is a market leader in wireless technology and has played a key role in the development and expansion of 5G networks worldwide. It should come as no surprise that the company's products and services are utilized by millions of individuals. Since the beginning of the year, the stock of QCOM has increased by more than 20% to $179.66, according to the most recent trading data.


On Tuesday, the company announced the release of its next-generation chipset for Android devices, which includes improvements to the company's existing processors. This will be Qualcomm's first 4nm chipset, as well as the first to use its new CPU architecture, which will be implemented in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
