Tech Stock Pulse Check: Feb 2022
Weekly updates on the innovation economy.
The following newsletter breaks down the current status, or “pulse,” of several popular technology companies. Readers and investors often ask what’s happening in the publicly-traded tech sector - this is intended to highlight measurable changes on a month-to-month basis.
Cohorts are broken down into three categories: FANGMAN, Large Technology Companies, and Software Companies. The companies that comprise each category are as follows:
Large Technology Companies
*Note: Market data as of 2/4/2022 and is sourced from Koyfin; some values have been rounded to the nearest whole number for visual clarity.
Multiples (EV/ NTM Sales) – Enterprise Value to Next 12-Months Sales
Percent Below 52-week Highs
Percent Above 52-week Lows
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
Upcoming Earnings Dates
Buying opportunities in the technology sector are present but mixed.
Since our previous months’ Pulse Check, large stock price moves have occurred in a handful of names, with EV/ NTM Sales multiples contracting for most FANGMAN, Large Technology, and Software companies.
Many software companies with competitive business fundamentals are just marginally above their 52-week low prices, suggesting that strong buying opportunities may be available for select companies in the cohort.
Our last Pulse Check highlighted the oversold nature of several software companies in this cohort - these were either at or below an RSI of 30. A large number of those companies now sit at a midpoint between overbought and oversold. This suggests that on a short-term basis, entry points for some of these companies may be less attractive.
We believe that throughout 2022 we will continue to see a gap in stock price performance between good and great businesses. Tactically overweighting select names could prove to be a winning strategy for the year.
