Most tech stocks have gained significantly over the past year as demand for technology solutions increased with the broad adoption of work-from-home structures amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Given the increased connectivity required to facilitate remote organizational structures,  the network industry has been one of the major beneficiaries.

While some tech stocks have experienced a pullback lately due to investors’ rotation away from pricey tech stocks and into quality bargains and rising Treasury bond yields,  pandemic-driven trends — such as work-from-home — are likely to continue in the foreseeable future thereby helping technology stocks to continue outperforming the broader market.

The backdrop for networking companies is expected to remain favorable. In fact, the Network as a Service (NaaS) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 34.5% over the next six years and the IT services global market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11% over the next five years.

So, we think it wise to bet on top networking stocks Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO - Get Rating) and Aviat Networks, Inc. (AVNW - Get Rating).
