My Best Technology Stock Picks For 2013
Every time, I am searching for the best investment opportunities at the market. The year goes by and I have to consider ideas for the next year. Today, I like to focus on technology, a field that is very underweighted in my private portfolio. I am looking for growth stocks with cheap price ratios and high-quality margins. That's why I screened the technology sector by stocks with a forward price to earnings ratio of less than 15, a sales growth over the past five years of more than 10 percent as well as an operating margin above 10 percent. In order to exclude low capitalized stocks, the market capitalization should be over USD 10 billion.
Exactly thirteen stocks fulfilled these criteria of which nine pay dividends - Eight have a buy or better recommendation.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
