In the decade spanning from 2013 to now, tech stocks have led the pack in terms of delivering returns to investors, helping push the broader market towards a series of all-time highs with double- and sometimes even triple-digit yearly gains.

During this period, being heavily invested in growth has been the fastest route towards building wealth in the stock market.

However, those who navigated the tumultuous pandemic-induced crash of 2020 and the bear market of 2022 are well aware that indiscriminate investment in such stocks does not always ensure success.

That's why finding the top tech stocks in the market is one of the greatest keys to success - particularly as the market expects the Fed to start lowering interest rates as early as next year.

But amidst the cacophony generated by a multitude of news and data, how does one skillfully navigate through it all?

To solve this issue, we have created our flagship ProPicks Tech Titans strategy. Using state-of-the-art AI models, ProPicks cuts through the noise to deliver you only the cream of the crop in stock-picking.
