: AUD | Audacy Inc. News, Ratings, and Charts

AUD – The growing demand for technology solutions and impressive breakthroughs should keep driving the industry’s growth. Since the continued monetary policy tightening and growing recession fears have led to quality tech stocks Audacy (AUD) and Celestica (CLS) currently trading at low prices, it could be worth scooping up these stocks to benefit from their solid rebound potential. Let’s discuss….

The Federal Reserve’s aggressive interest rate hikes to tame the soaring inflation has prompted recession fears among investors. As a result, the interest-rate-sensitive technology industry has witnessed massive sell-offs lately. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite lost 26% year-to-date.

The central bank is expected to keep raising interest rates this year, keeping tech stocks under pressure. However, given the strong demand for tech products and solutions and the consistent breakthroughs, the industry should rebound soon.

The tech sell-off has led to some quality stocks trading at attractive valuations. Fundamentally strong tech stocks Audacy, Inc. (AUD) and Celestica Inc. (CLS) are currently trading below $10. Given the solid rebound potential, it could be wise to scoop up these stocks now.
