Groupon, Inc. announced today that it intends to hold a conference call to discuss its second quarter 2019 financial results on Wednesday, July 31, 2019, at 10:00am EDT.
You can't deny that the technology sector is fast-paced. It's ever-changing as new fads, trends, devices, and applications come and go. Today, it's cloud computing. A few years ago, it was wearable devices. And who can forget the hype surrounding B2B stocks during the dotcom days?But as these trends shifted, so too have the various tech stocks. The sector is littered with former leaders that have now turned into losers.Not all former high-flying tech stocks are worthy of the dust bin, though.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIn fact, there are plenty of decidedly old-school technology firms that are still making plenty of profits, cash flows and even dividends for their shareholders.For investors, these now-forgotten tech stocks could be huge potential values in the making. Sure, they require some patience and a little luck, but the potential rewards are great. All in all, making some room in a portfolio for a few forgotten tech stocks could make a ton of sense. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy for the Second Half of 2019 But which ones actually have the goods to outperform over the long haul? Here are three former high-flying tech stocks that could be big bargains. eBay (EBAY)While Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and even Walmart (NYSE:WMT) capture most of investor's e-commerce love, old school tech stock eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) continues to rack up sales and profit growth.The firm is still one of the largest online retailers in the world -- with more than 179 million active users and an average of over 1.9 billion listings on its site at any one time. Meanwhile, as a third-party listing service, EBAY features some pretty high margins and cash flows when it comes to people actually making a purchase on the site.And it turns out, the firm has some tricks up its sleeve to get its former mojo going.After eBay jettisoned PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL), growth at the firm slowed to a trickle. In order to get that growth back, the firm is starting to copy a playbook that has helped both AMZN and WMT: sponsored ads and promoted listings.EBAY charges sellers a fee in order to boost the prevalence of their products and quicken the pace of a sale. The beauty is that EBAY will still get the standard commission fees when the item does sell.These promoted ads are starting to work wonders. During the first quarter, eBay managed to generate more than $65 million in extra revenues from them. Better still, this only improves the firm's margins. Adding in moves to refresh and simplify the buying experience, eBay is back on track to post some significant gains this year.Despite the potential, new dividend, and increased estimates, EBAY stock trades at a forward P/E of 13. When it comes to tech stocks, eBay should not be forgotten. Groupon (GRPN)Source: Shutterstock A strange thing recently happened at a summer kick-off barbecue I attended. Multiple people were talking deals that they had scored on Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN).About a decade ago, the deal-making site became a huge fad as it promoted its voucher system for local restaurants, goods, and various services. You could pay a low cost to save as much as 80% on dinner, a movie, and even dog grooming services. These days, GRPN is moving away from that system and into a potentially more lucrative one for consumers and its bottom line.Groupon now offers what's called card-linked deals. Instead of buying a voucher for a service later on, consumers are able to link a credit card to the account and then get cash back after they buy a good or service advertised on the platform. The benefit is that customers don't pay until the point of service and can use deals an unlimited number of times.At the same time, it has revamped its voucher-based products by adding appointments for certain services and experience segments. These two moves are designed to create a more seamless interaction between customers and businesses. Moreover, it's designed to make using GRPN a habit. The tech stock just sits back and collects the fees. * 10 Best Stocks for 2019: A Volatile First Half And while it's easy to write GRPN off as a former fad, the firm continues to be free cash flow positive, have a huge $1 billion in cash on its balance sheet, and see improving results. In the end, Groupon may be a former high-flyer, but today, investors are getting a huge sale on the discount provider. Dell Technologies (DELL)Dude, you're getting a Dell … again. However, these days Dell Technologies (NASDAQ:DELL) is a far better and perhaps more important tech stock than it was during the go-go dotcom days.The story of how DELL got here is perhaps a bit convoluted. The PC maker was public throughout the internet boom and was taken private by founder Michael Dell and Silver Lake Partners. During that time, the firm made a big splash when it bought enterprise software specialist EMC Corporation, which also included a stake in VMware (NASDAQ:VMW). This led to a tracking stock covering Dell's VMW holding.Which brings us to today. Dell decided to roll-up that tracking stock and once again IPO as its former ticker DELL.And while it may have fallen out of the public eye in the five or so years it wasn't openly traded, DELL has become a monster of an integrated tech stock. The PC and server business is still there -- which is booming thanks to rising data center demand. Meanwhile, the firm is a leader in cloud computing and virtualization software, cybersecurity via RSA as well as various infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) products. Today's DELL is looking like a real contender among leading tech stocks. That fact has shown up in its first-quarter results. First quarter revenue clocked in at $21.9 billion -- an increase of 3%.In the end, Dell may be a blast from the past. But this is one forgotten tech stock ready to rewrite its future. At the time of writing, Aaron Levitt held a long position in AMZN.

Tech stocks usually do not get a second chance. Once there is a major breakdown, it is extremely tough to regain a competitive edge. Just look at companies like Nokia (NYSE:NOK), BlackBerry (NYSE:BB) and Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN). Yes, things can get brutal. But as for Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), the company has been able to beat the odds. During the past few years, AMD stock has staged an impressive turnaround.Source: Shutterstock In fact, Advanced Micro Devices is an example of a company that has had several second chances! Keep in mind that it has been around since 1969. Through its history, it has been able to get traction against arch-rival Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) from time to time, but the gains would not last long. AMD simply did not have the global scale to keep up the momentum.Things are different now. For the most part, AMD is a transformed company. It has become more disciplined with its cost-cutting. There has also been the outsourcing of chip production. More important, the company has become obsessed with innovation.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 S&P 500 Dividend Stocks to Buy at Least Yielding 3% A Closer Look at AMD StockThis recent turnaround has been due to the strong leadership of CEO Lisa Lu. She has a rare blend of talents for both business and technology.For example, she has written 40 technical papers and has a doctorate degree in electrical engineering from MIT. She has also held executive-level positions at companies like Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE:FSL) and IBM (NYSE:IBM).When it comes to AMD stock, it's important to understand that the technology platform is fairly unique. That is, the company develops both CPUs (Central Processing Units) and GPUs (Graphics Processing Units).Both technologies have been around for quite some time, but their uses have undergone significant changes resulting in an expanded market opportunity. With CPUs, there is the growth in the data center market while GPUs have proven to be ideal for AI (Artificial Intelligence) and analytics.Granted, INTC remains a formidable competitor, and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) has a powerful position with GPUs. Yet the market opportunities for these technologies is large enough for multiple players.AMD is starting to get separation because of its focus on innovation. For example, the company has put together a solid 7nm product, which should lead to market share gains. As for GPUs, there continues to be validation, as seen with a recent licensing of its Radeon graphics technology to Samsung (this will be for the massive mobile segment).Another major validation for AMD is a deal with Cray (NASDAQ:CRAY), which is in the process of being acquired by Hewlett Packard (NYSE:HPE). Cray will use AMD CPUs and GPUs for the development of the Frontier supercomputer that will launch in 2021. It is expected to be the world's fastest computer. Bottom Line on AMD StockNo doubt, AMD stock does face some notable challenges and headwinds. The U.S.-China trade war is disrupting supply chains in the chip market and weighing on global growth. At the same time, AMD still has limited resources and must deal with managing the complexities of targeting multiple markets.But so far, Su has shown she knows how to focus on the right things and get results.Granted, when it comes to AMD stock, the gains may not be on par of what we've seen in the past few years. But then again, for investors looking to get exposure to key markets like the data center and AI, this company does look like a solid option.Tom Taulli is the author of High-Profit IPO Strategies, All About Commodities and All About Short Selling.

When serial entrepreneur Eric Lefkofsky grows a company, he puts the pedal to the metal. When in 2011 his last company, the Chicago-based coupons site Groupon, raised $950 million from investors, it was the largest amount raised by a start-up, ever. Lefkofsky seems to be stealing a page from the same playbook for his newest company Tempus.
