Macrovue’s American Tech Stars Vue includes the ten largest technology companies in the U.S. by market capitalisation. It features some of the most recognisable and iconic brands in the industry like Google, Apple and Facebook.

Technology. The word evokes images of Uber cabs and Airbnb rooms. With proliferation of smartphones, consumer technology now touches almost every aspect of our lives. Want to look up a new brand? Google it. Keeping up with social lives of your friends? Facebook and Instagram to the rescue.

But application of Information Technology (IT), goes far beyond consumer products and services. Immense productivity gains have been made in the past few decades in almost every sector through effective use of IT.

Applications are wide-ranging – more efficient supply chain and logistics management, to improved automation and control in manufacturing. IT has driven growth and productivity gains across every industry.

Why is technology an attractive investment?

It would be no exaggeration to say that IT is one of the major pillars of a developed economy. This fact manifests itself in the equity markets as well. The technology sector in US is arguably the most developed and innovative globally. The top 10 companies in the IT sector had a combined market capitalisation of more than US$2.8 trillion. That is more than Australia’s GDP!

Buying technology heavyweights gives you a stake in some iconic names that have the firepower to acquire up and coming new entrants and gain market share rapidly. With record high cash balances, they have the ability to invest in innovative R&D projects (think Google’s moon shot projects) to continue the momentum.
