Can Google, Tesla, Microsoft, CrowdStrike, PayPal Keep The Tech Train Rolling?

Since the second half of May, the tech-heavy Nasdaq has reclaimed leadership over the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Now Alphabet (GOOGL), PayPal (PYPL), Tesla (TSLA), Microsoft (MSFT), ServiceNow (NOW), Applied Materials (AMAT), Shopify (SHOP) and CrowdStrike (CRWD) are trying to ride that tech train to new heights.


Each of these leading growth stocks has earned a spot on IBD Leaderboard. As demand for cybersecurity stocks intensifies, CrowdStrike has risen to a new all-time high, securing a spot on the IBD 50 and IPO Leaders.

While CrowdStrike has rebounded strongly from a pullback that began in February, the Innovator IBD 50 ETF (FFTY) continues to test support and resistance at its 10-week moving average. The IBD 50 ETF reflects the selling pressure and volatility that the Nasdaq, in particular, experienced from February to May.

With technology stocks back in favor, look for the IBD 50 ETF to move decisively above its 10-week line and break out of its current consolidation.

Meanwhile, Microsoft, GOOGL stock, ServiceNow and PayPal also join the ranks of IBD Long-Term Leaders.
