Goldman analysts cite areas of the technology industry that already have flourished and will continue to do so, such as software, social media, cloud services and unified marketplaces.
The analysts also point to tech sectors that are just beginning to bloom, including artificial intelligence, financial technology, cybersecurity, 5G, blockchain and sustainability.
Meanwhile, several media outlets reported that Cathie Wood’s Ark Investment Management unloaded 46,414 shares of Tesla Thursday, worth $41.5 million at Thursday’s close.
Wood has sold Tesla from time to time to control the size of Ark’s position, as the stock ascends, but has said she remains bullish long-term.
Tesla has doubled to $907.33 over the past year. The shares were up 1% Friday. Ark has sold about $811 million of Tesla stock since the beginning of September, Benzinga information service estimates.
