Got $5,000? 3 Tech Stocks to Buy and Hold for the Long Term

Got $5,000? 3 Tech Stocks to Buy and Hold for the Long Term

If you'd invested $5,000 in an S&P 500 index fund 10 years ago, your investment would be worth around $12,500 today. For example, a $5,000 investment in Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) would have grown over the past decade to around $44,000, while the same investment in Google (whose parent company is now called Alphabet) would be worth nearly $27,000 today. Not every stock will be the next Amazon or Alphabet, but some lucrative long-term buying opportunities have emerged in the growing cloud, semiconductor, and ad-tech markets as the grueling bear market drags on.
