5 Rare Fairly Valued Companies In The Technology Services Sector


Throughout this series I have referenced the idea that the stock market in the general sense may be overvalued, or at least fully valued.On the other hand, I have also pointed out that it is a market of stocks and not a stock market. In that vein, I have suggested that there are many companies in virtually every sector that are either attractive or undervalued despite general market levels. However, I have also suggested that there are certain sectors such as the Finance Sector where low valuations were abundant.

In contrast, the Technology Services Sector covered in this article is a sector where overvaluation is rampant. In other words, this is currently a hot sector where sound valuation has been thrown out the window in favor of what I can only describe as hype and speculation .Importantly, it has long been my contention that you can overpay for even the best companies. In my humble opinion, this is precisely what is happening in the Technology Services Sector with names such as Autodesk Inc., Microsoft, Accenture, Adobe and many more too numerous to mention. Although these are all great companies, I believe they are also all great companies that are being significantly overvalued by the market.With this article, I will be covering only 5 that are not.
