Two Tech Giants Struggling? Here are 3 Stocks to Consider

It seems as if the tech world is still reeling from the death of Steve Jobs. The two leaders in the industry, Apple and Amazon, are struggling to stay on top. Investors may be wondering what stocks they should invest in now that these giants have fallen from grace? Here are three companies you should consider investing in instead: Facebook, Netflix and Google.

Facebook is a social media titan. Their market cap is about $80 billion and they are expected to grow 30% next year. This means that Facebook will likely overtake Amazon in the near future. If you buy shares of Facebook now, you will get them at a great price with high returns later on. Due to fundamental tax laws, you will be subject to taxes on your gain long-term. This means that now may be the best time to buy Facebook.

Netflix is another company with high growth prospects. Their stock is currently valued at about $13 billion; they are looking to triple their revenue within 3 years, according to Forbes . If you decide to invest in Netflix now, you will get your investment back with a big return later on. As with Facebook, you may be subject to capital gains taxes if the company’s stock rises in value.

Last but not least is Google. They are currently valued at $247 billion and they expect to grow significantly by 2015. Since Google has been around for a while now, they are currently valued at a great price. You can expect to see your investment grow substantially over time as Google continues to expand and their market cap climbs by the day.

The purpose of this article is not to tell you which stocks will go up in value but rather to highlight three companies that may be good alternatives for investors. Now that tech giants have fallen, investors are looking for alternatives. These three companies are worth considering if you want to invest in tech stocks now.

I was born in the land of Blount, but for most of my life I’ve lived in an area much smaller than a dot on the map. I’m not really one for crowds or large cities.

It’s amazing how many people live in this crowded world; six billion and counting. That’s six billion individuals who have their own hopes, dreams, opinions and religious beliefs. As I walk down the street in this crowded metropolis of concrete and steel, I wonder about all these people. What are they thinking? Who are they? Can they be trusted? It’s only natural to have these questions when you live in a world where everybody is always looking over their shoulder and trusting nobody. The funny thing is that, deep down inside, we all feel like we’re better than the rest. Almost as if we’re special in some way…

I’ve been sitting here for half an hour now; waiting for my morning coffee to cool down. Today is a cold one and the heat hasn’t come on yet. The steam coming of the cup in my hand is making me feel even more miserably hot than I already was. I’ve got sweat rolling down the back of my neck, but I can’t get up to wipe it off.

I’m sitting right outside of Starbucks in this crowded city. Right across the street is an old, run down hotel that I paid $25 for last night. It was far from luxurious but it did have a bathroom, which was good enough for me.

The guy who sold me the room seemed kind of suspicious to me; he wouldn’t really look at me or talk to me. He kept asking if I was going to make a mess in there and if I would be causing any problems. As soon as the cash came out, he didn’t give me a second look.

I’ve got my guitar sitting on my knees right now and a cup of coffee that has yet to cool down enough for me to taste it. The rain has been pouring down all day and the streets are just a sheet of water. I’m waiting for somebody to show up at this Starbucks in the next half hour so that I can play them a few songs in exchange for a hot coffee.
