Earnings season is just about over but before it is done, there’s some more retailers and some prominent technology companies still to report earnings.
These five technology companies have all had hot charts in 2019. Some have broken out to new 5-year highs.
But with tariffs looking to hit the technology sector hard, many pulled back in the May weakness.
Is this weakness a buying opportunity in these growth stocks?
5 Technology Stocks with Great Earnings Charts
1. Coupa Software COUP hasn’t missed since its 2016 IPO. Shares are up 63% year-to-date and have hit a new multi-year. They’re also not cheap, with a forward P/E of 1348. Can it keep up this torrid pace?
2. Salesforce CRM hasn’t missed since Zacks data began in 2015. That’s an impressive streak. Shares hit new 5-year highs in 2019 but have weakened. Will another earnings beat give the shares a boost?
3. Guidewire Software GWRE also hasn’t missed since Zacks Records began in 2015. Shares of this platform for property and casualty insurers rebounded from the late 2018 selloff, adding 20% year-to-date. But it’s not cheap, with a forward P/E of 72.
4. Ambarella AMBA also hasn’t missed since Zacks records began in 2015. It hit a new 52-week high in 2019 but sold off in May. Yet shares are still up nearly 9% year-to-date. Can it regain momentum with a solid report?
5. Ciena CIEN has beat 3 quarters in a row. It hit a new 52-week high in February 2019 but has since weakened. This is the cheapest of these five companies, with a forward P/E of just 19.
