Opportunity in tech stocks with NASDAQ down over 20% this year? Expected pretty robust comeback in the second half of the year. But he didn't expect S&P to be up 4% and NASDAQ up 10% in one month. Got a bit ahead of itself. In the summer, the institutions tend to back away and it's more the technicians out there, so you can have a lot more volatility. Going into the fall, tech stocks will take the market a lot higher, if not close to where we started at the beginning of the year. Seems right now that there are clear signals of economic softening. Earnings for the second quarter have been OK. Yet central banks are tightening and you're starting to see the effects which, hopefully, will pave the way to a softish landing. That could leave central banks to pivot going into next year. He sees a much better place this time next year, or even into the spring. Indexes are barometers of where the economy should be in 6-9 months. He's modestly bullish.

Which segments of tech would rally the most? High growth, not-so-profitable software stocks are going to have to come around. The hardware side should lead the charge, which will drag the software. Difficult when you look at semiconductors, as they're going through cyclicality with a rebalancing of supply/demand. Doesn't think semis will lead the charge.

Cybersecurity space has been the place to be this year. Integrated, automated cybersecurity around the world. Lots of competition. See his Top Picks. (Analysts’ price target is $69.75)
Technology
STRONG BUY
If he were to pick one tech stock, this would be it. Diversification, cloud, search engine that brings in advertising. 80% of revenue comes from Search, and 97% of profits come from ads. In his top 5 holdings. (Analysts’ price target is $144.25)
Business Services
BUY
One-stop shop, a leader. Price target of $564, a very decent runway. Research firm has it as #1 in its magic quadrant in digital commerce. (Analysts’ price target is $564.00)
computer software / processing
PARTIAL BUY
Similar to PLTR. It's companies like SNOW that will lead this market higher. Oversold, but he'd buy in stages around $160, 145, and 130. (Analysts’ price target is $290.00)
Technology
BUY on WEAKNESS
Loves their technology and business model. Trades terribly. A good bargain if you can pick it up down around 12-13 cents. Hard to get traction. Has a great following, but more competition coming on.
