Although tech stocks generally comprise a hot space, not all companies within the space are hype-worthy.The technology sector is one of the biggest gainers of the year. With an almost 40% year-to-date gain, 2019 will go down in the history books as a banner year for tech stocks. Its ranks are full of out-sized winners that have showered shareholders with profits. Heavy hitters like Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) have led the charge. But not all companies that call technology home have participated in the rally. Some find themselves sliding into Christmas amid disappointing earnings and deteriorating technicals. * 7 Hot Payments Stocks to Buy Now With that in mind, let's take a look at three tech stocks to sell before the start of 2020.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Tech Stocks to Sell: Cisco Systems (CSCO)Source: The thinkorswim® platform from TD Ameritrade Drawdown from 2019 peak: -25%Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) shares were flying high into mid-year but have since been thoroughly smashed. The downtrend accelerated following the past two earnings reports, revealing widespread disappointment in the company's profitability. The damage has been bad enough to turn the slow-moving 200-day average lower to join its shorter-term counterparts.This week's support break signaled a continuation of the descent and points toward a potential retest of its early January low near $41. Volume patterns show a groundswell in distribution over the past few months and are reflective of institutions abandoning ship. While the tides could always turn, CSCO is one of the ugliest ducklings in the tech sector. Dropbox (DBX)Source: The thinkorswim® platform from TD Ameritrade Drawdown from 2019 peak: -32%The chart of Dropbox (NYSE:DBX) reveals consistent weakness ever since its IPO. There was a single moment of hope last June when DBX scored a robust breakout, but it fizzled fast, and the stock has been cruising lower ever since. The first half of the year was constructive and even had DBX stock push back above all major moving averages. But, the progress was wholly dismantled over the back half of the year. * 10 Hot Pot Stocks to Buy We're now within spitting distance of all-time lows. Every single time the stock gets an uptrend going, its quarterly earnings report arrives to throw a wet blanket on the bullishness. The past four events have seen heavy selling pressure. Until the fundamentals can improve enough to warrant an upside surprise in the stock after an earnings release, the chances for recovery are slim. Twilio (TWLO)Source: The thinkorswim® platform from TD Ameritrade Drawdown from 2019 peak: -35%Twilio (NYSE:TWLO) could be a case of a stock running too far too fast. Its meteoric ascent since its 2016 IPO carried the software company up over 500%. That's a lot of future growth getting priced in. Perhaps the recent dismantling is simply a correction of the exuberance, a return to more sane valuation. It's a plausible narrative.But even if you view this as a longer-term dip to be bought, the chart still looks terrible. More evidence is needed before you pile in. At a minimum, TWLO stock needs to break above resistance and the 50-day moving average to reverse the uninterrupted series of lower lows and lower highs. A push above $106 would do the trick.Until then, steer clear of bottoming fishing.As of this writing, Tyler Craig didn't hold positions in any of the aforementioned securities.

(Bloomberg) -- Amazon.com Inc. claims it lost a Pentagon cloud contract valued at as much as $10 billion because of political interference by President Donald Trump, according to the judge overseeing the case.Federal Claims Court Judge Patricia Campbell-Smith said during a court proceeding last week that Amazon’s lawsuit argues that the Pentagon didn’t award the cloud deal to Microsoft Corp. on the basis of a fair evaluation of the companies’ bids.“Plaintiff contends that the procurement process was compromised and negatively affected by the bias expressed publicly by the president and commander in chief Donald Trump against plaintiff,” Campbell-Smith said in a recording of a status hearing released Thursday by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington.The judge’s comments were the first public confirmation that Amazon cited bias by Trump as grounds to overturn the award to Microsoft. Trump has long criticized Amazon founder Jeff Bezos on everything from the shipping rates his company pays the U.S. Postal Service to his personal ownership of what Trump calls “the Amazon Washington Post.”The contract was awarded to Microsoft “despite what plaintiff characterizes as its depth of experience, superior technology and proven record of success in handling the most sensitive government data,” Campbell-Smith said.Amazon filed a lawsuit under seal with the court last month to formally protest its loss of the Pentagon’s Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, or JEDI, cloud contract.For More: Amazon’s $10 Billion Pentagon Challenge: Proving Trump MeddledCampbell-Smith said Amazon is seeking to prohibit the Defense Department from proceeding without a new evaluation or award decision. The company is requesting that the Pentagon either reevaluate bids or reopen the procurement to allow for bid revisions, the judge said.Campbell-Smith also granted Microsoft’s request to intervene in the suit.In July, Trump stunned lawmakers and technology companies when he openly questioned whether the JEDI contract was being competitively bid, citing complaints from Microsoft, Oracle Corp. and International Business Machines Corp.Dana Deasy, the Pentagon’s chief information officer, said during his confirmation hearing in late October that to the best of his knowledge, no one from the White House reached out to any members of the JEDI cloud contract selection team.The Pentagon’s JEDI cloud project is designed to consolidate the department’s cloud computing infrastructure and modernize its technology systems. The contract is worth as much as $10 billion over 10 years and could offer the winner a bigger foothold in the burgeoning federal cloud market.(Updates with Amazon seeking new evaluation and decision from seventh paragraph)To contact the reporter on this story: Naomi Nix in Washington at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Sara Forden at firstname.lastname@example.org, Larry LiebertFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Many investors are often captivated by the more glamorous side of the technology sector and although Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT) and Qualcomm (QCOM) are older companies, share price appreciation puts those behemoths in the glitzy category. Importantly, many legacy technology are dividend payers and growers. TDV is the only ETF focused on U.S. technology dividend growers—Technology Dividend Aristocrats—that have raised their dividends for a minimum of seven consecutive years.
