With the year coming to a close, the tech space is turning out to be a buzz of activity with huge movements on stocks that have been a disappointment for the better part of the year. GVA Research Principal Analyst, David Garrity, during an interview on CNBC, echoed that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) are some of the investable stocks heading into 2015.
Apple has already launched its mobile payment system Apple Pay, which Mr. Garrity believes will give the company an uplift heading into the new-year. Apple is still facing a number of challenges as a number of merchants continue to show resentment to the new service.
“Obviously Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has iPhone 6, Facebook has year-end advertising around the holiday season which we think is good. We also think outside of that, though in terms of secular theme mobile money is attractive. We think at that area, VeriFone Systems Inc. (NYSE:PAY) is attractive because of upgrades to point of sale terminals for Near Filed Communications coming with iPhone 6 and others, “said Mr. Garrity.
Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) continues to shun competition heading into the holiday season where it is expected to gain even more traction as advertisers seek to gain a great deal on the holiday season shopping spree. Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is to offer the biggest threat to Facebook dominance of the space as it has the financial power and user base to attract more advertisers as well.
Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has been an underperformer in the recent past and is currently 10% below its 52-week high. Loomis Sayles & Co David Sowerby believes that Google will pick up, sooner than later and be a valuable wealth creator as it has been over the years.
“On the recent sell-off, Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is still trading at about 10% below its 52 week high but a long term wealth creator over the last eight years. You can find value in this business, revenue is expanding. I think the YouTube as well as the search activity is still quite robust that makes Google a long-term wealth provider.
