Eleon 24 mins ago Winning investments in the tech sector have been hard to come by in 2022. S&P500 the index is down about 15.5% since the start of the year, and the index even more technological Nasdaq Compound the index fell by 28% over the entire stretch. Portfolios have been hit hard, but market volatility is also creating interesting opportunities. Read on to find out why two Motley Fool contributors identified these companies as the best tech stocks to invest in after big pullbacks. This tech titan has the makings of a long-term winner Keith Noonan (Amazon): Amazonit is (NASDAQ: AMZN) The stock price has fallen 45% year-to-date and is trading down 50% from its July 2021 high. Contraries affecting its business have dented the company’s valuation, the tech titan has huge options and is built for long-term success. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been and continues to spearhead the cloud infrastructure market, and it is expected to continue to deliver solid sales growth and high-margin revenue alongside the growth of the Internet in his outfit. The performance of the AWS unit will not be completely immune to macro pressures, but the long-term outlook for the company’s cloud infrastructure services remains very promising, and the segment’s strong operating result should help offset the high costs and other pressures that e-commerce is currently facing. Company. In addition to inflation-related costs, Amazon’s e-commerce business is facing declining demand due to the pandemic and tough comparisons to times when shoppers avoided in-person purchases. These trends have depressed the company’s valuation, but the online retail business is expected to return to stronger performance and the market appears to be underestimating its potential as a long-term profit generator. Amazon is already positioning itself as an early leader in robotics, and chances are the automation of its warehouse and delivery networks will reach a tipping point where revenue will eventually grow much faster than operating costs. The strength of the e-commerce space has also made it easy for the company to get into digital advertising. Amazon ranks third among players in the digital advertising industry, behind only Alphabet and Metaplatforms, and its ad unit has grown at an impressive rate. With the company’s digital advertising business growing 25% year-over-year to approximately $9.5 billion in third-quarter sales despite some industry headwinds, it’s clear the company has built a solid new business pillar. With the stock halving from its peak, I think investors can score wins by building long positions in Amazon. This software stock is well oversold Jeremy Bowman (Okta): It is perhaps an understatement to say that Okta (NASDAQ:OKTA) had a difficult year. The cloud identity software company, which provides tools for employees and customers to connect and stay connected to the applications they need, has been a market darling since its IPO in 2017. But this year, the stock tumbled, down about 79%. It’s also down about 83% from its lifespan peak. Okta faced the same headwinds as much of the tech sector, including fears of a recession and rising interest rates that put pressure on valuations. But the company also acknowledged in its second-quarter earnings report that it encountered slowdowns in its integration of Auth0, the customer identity access software company it acquired last spring. Additionally, Okta said it’s starting to see sales cycles lengthen and has pulled back from its long-term forecast of $4 billion in revenue and $800 million in cash flow. available for fiscal year 2026, which ends in January of the same year. However, at this point, the stock seems oversold. Okta is trading at a price-to-sales ratio below 5, but its long-term growth prospects don’t look too different than they did a few months ago. Revenue jumped 43% in its latest quarter, showing growth remained strong, and current remaining performance obligations, or backlog, rose 36% to $1.5 billion. More importantly, the company is taking steps to resolve the issue with Auth0. Chief Operating Officer Frederic Kerrest said in an interview with The Motley Fool that Okta has stepped up hiring to replace sales reps the company lost during the integration, but is still working. to train them. Okta also clarified products for its sales force and customers. Finally, given the weakening macroeconomic climate, the company may be forced to postpone its long-term revenue target by approximately one year. But, it will get there, and its reorientation towards profitability makes sense given current market sentiment. Okta pursues an $80 billion addressable market and is widely regarded as the leader in cloud identity, although current revenue is still below $2 billion, leaving plenty of room for growth. . Investors should take advantage of the selloff and buy Okta before it rebounds. Playing the long game with Amazon and Okta could lead to big wins While volatility may continue to shape the market in the short term, taking a buy-and-hold approach with strong companies remains one of the best ways to build long-term wealth. In this mold, Amazon and Okta have promising competitive advantages and untapped market opportunities that position them well for the future. And the selloffs have pushed their respective valuations to levels that leave room for very solid returns.
