This year has been a wild and painful ride for lots of stocks, but many tech companies have been able to thrive, thanks to the shift to remote work that has boosted demand for everything from cloud solutions to cybersecurity. Wedbush believes that the biggest names will keep winning.

Analyst Daniel Ives took a look at tech on Monday, writing that the “staggering recovery in tech stocks back to new highs has been a recognition that the remote workforce dynamic is here to stay for the foreseeable future and at the core it is tech vendors that are enabling and facilitating this ‘new normal’ for consumers and enterprises looking ahead.”

He thinks of the tech-stock resurgence as having two phases, the first of which has largely ended. That was when investors flocked into stocks that provided cloud solutions, such as Microsoft (MSFT), (AMZN), and Alphabet (GOOGL), Google’s parent; those that offered consumer services, like Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX), and Walt Disney (DIS); providers of cybersecurity, such as Palo Alto Networks (PANW), and Fortine t (FTNT); and firms that facilitated remote working, like Slack Technologies (WORK) and Citrix Systems (CTXS).

Now we are moving into the second phase, which is leveraged to the recovery, he says. Ives thinks that forecasts for profits will rise, and that tech stocks will go higher as investors get more comfortable with risk as they hunt for growth.

Investors would do well to stick with some of the biggest players, namely Apple and Microsoft, Ives wrote.

Apple’s services business has been a huge boon, but “now the drumroll shifts to a massive pent up demand for smartphone upgrades heading into its linchpin iPhone 12 5G cycle slated to kick off in late October,” Ives said.

Some 350 million iPhones world-wide are ripe for upgrades, Ives estimated, saying Apple is “roaring its engines ready to capitalize on this dynamic.” Sales of AirPods, meanwhile, are in line to reach 85 million this year, versus 65 million last year, he said.

Microsoft, meanwhile, is Ives’s favorite cloud stock, as the company should be a major beneficiary from the remote-work trend. More and more work is being done using cloud-based resources, and the shift away from having staff gather in offices “could clearly accelerate the cloud trend by roughly a year as more chief information officers are now being forced to face the new normal/reality for their respective organizations looking ahead.” he said.

Microsoft’s Azure is increasingly well positioned to benefit as it has closed the gap with Amazon Web Services, Ives said.

A revolutionary initiative is helping average Americans find quick and lasting stock market success.
