NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Tech stocks such as Apple (AAPL), IBM (IBM) and VMware (VMW) may benefit from the next round of quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve, speculated to be sometime in 2012.
The Federal Reserve did not announce another round of easing at its latest policy meeting, but there were slight changes to the statement which signal the Fed may indeed act. "The Committee will closely monitor incoming information on economic and financial developments and will provide additional accommodation as needed to promote a stronger economic recovery and sustained improvement in labor market conditions in a context of price stability," the FOMC wrote in a release.
