How Do We Find ASX Tech Stocks To Buy?

Tech stocks in Australia are generally driven almost entirely by qualitative factors such as first mover advantage, quality and of their software and overall technology.

Quantitative factors such as profit, revenue and so forth generally take a back seat.

Even though it is imperative that their financials are sound, when it comes to tech stocks, we are buying the story and perceived future value.

However, the very nature of valuing companies through qualitative factors means that there is a lot of room for error, opinion and subjectivity.

This means that tech stocks tend to be small to medium cap, high risk and fairly speculative.

The hardest part when it comes to finding ASX tech stocks is the ability to process the information and factors at hand to make a good judgement call.

Our Research team specialises in this and has combed the ASX for some of the best tech stocks on the Australian market.

I am registered only on the free advice, I have found their advice to be so much more complete compared to other sites... which you have to pay for, it is timely and does not seem to be a shotgun approach as many sites seem to do so that some time in the future they can cherry pick their good results. For me 1 or 2 shares a week is so much more meaning to me for my style of investment, do I recommend MF& co, I sure do.read more
