High-tech Stock

The HTML to link to this page
 

A high-tech stock is a publicly traded stock of companies in technology and electronics sectors. High-tech stock corporations are typically involved in developing and producing computer technology, semiconductor and silicone chip production, as well as new media technology, such as Internet related equipment. Other areas of high-tech stock companies' association may include developing cutting edge electronics and biochemical technology. Because they are innovation driven, high-tech stock firms operate in a highly competitive environment. This aspect of the industry greatly affects high-tech stock stability. Although many high-tech stock issues are classified as growth stocks, the risk associated with investing in high-tech stock companies is just as prominent. Furthermore, due to their aggressive nature and above average return potential, high-tech stock companies rarely pay dividends.
