5 tech stocks for your watchlist now

As we near the end of June, tech stocks appear to be making a comeback in the stock market today. Understandably, given the somewhat mixed economic data, some would consider buying tech stocks on the downside. After all, most of the fastest growing stocks of 2020 are part of the tech industry. Despite their long-term growth potential, many are lagging the broader market in terms of year-to-date earnings. With all of this in mind, I could see investors now returning to the tech industry.

Plus, the world of technology continues regardless of stock performance this year. Today, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) is expected to unveil the next version of its industry-leading Windows Operating System (OS). Notably, Windows 11 would represent the latest update to the company's operating system in over six years.

At the same time, even institutional investors are looking to cybersecurity companies like CrowdStrike Holdings (NYSE: CrowdStrike Holdings). According to Brad Reback, an analyst for Stifel (NYSE: SF), CrowdStrike has "significant runways remaining" as demand for its services increases. Reback recently hit CRWD stock with a "Buy" rating and a price target of $ 300. It remains to be seen whether the current recovery in technology continues. Still, should you be trying to replenish your portfolio with some cheaper tech names, here are five you should know about in the stock market now.

Amazon is a company that needs no introduction. Given its vast e-commerce empire and leading cloud computing division, most should be familiar with the company.

If so, it would be the most daily online sales in the US this year. At the same time, Amazon Web Services recently expanded and deepened its current partnership with Salesforce (NYSE: CRM).
