We’ve had our first major bout of market volatility in a couple of months. Given that the bull market remains intact, it’s presenting an opportunity to add exposure to some high-quality stocks.

 

While the fortunes of some sectors have deteriorated, technology is an exception. Low rates are helpful as are the litany of strong earnings reports.

 

Below, we provide a look at three of the most oversold tech stocks you should consider adding to your portfolio: Micron Technology (MU), McAfee (MCFE), and Trimble (TRMB).

The stock also has a low forward P/E ratio of 12.67 so there is certainly the potential for significant upward movement in due time.

TRMB has an elevated forward P/E ratio of 33.22 so there is an argument to be made it might be slightly overpriced. Investors who fear volatility should not hesitate to invest in TRMB as it has a beta of 1.52, indicating it is unlikely to move too far in one direction should the market significantly undulate.


MU shares were trading at $75.32 per share on Thursday afternoon, down $1.87 (-2.42%). Year-to-date, MU has gained 0.19%, versus a 17.16% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.
