Technology stocks have presented some of the biggest opportunities in the market over the last few decades. In fact, many small-cap tech stocks tend to get overshadowed by their large-cap counterparts known as the FANGs.
But the FANGs—a group of tech stocks Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google parent, Alphabet — don’t look nearly as appealing as the “mini-FANGs,” according to Jim Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Leuthold Group.
Paulsen, in a note published Monday, argues that small-cap tech looks like a bargain compared with large-cap peers. So why tilt to small-caps now, and especially tech?
Paulsen argues that if we get slightly better economic data, including a bump in inflation, small-caps should outperform since they tend to do well when inflation is picking up. Take a look at 3 tech stocks to watch during October.
