While investors ponder about what stocks to buy today, I could see tech stocks moving in the stock market. Why? Well, tech investors received some positive news yesterday from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. At the end of the two-day meeting, it was revealed that the Feds would keep its benchmark interest rate close to zero. Moreover, central bank officials also noted that the next hike could come in 2023. Could the worst of investors’ interest rate fears be over for now?
If anything, CNBC’s Jim Cramer seems to believe so. The Mad Money host suggests that investors should stick their strategies and “buy some high-quality stocks” amidst the current dips. Adding to that, he also believes that industrials and tech stocks could have “a lot more room to run“. Indeed, all this would put some of the top tech stocks in the stock market today in focus.
While this is great news for the tech industry, tech companies have and continue to make massive strides regardless. Notably, tech giants like Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) and Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU) are making plays this week as well. In Google’s case, the company provided consumers a sneak peek inside its first-ever physical retail store in New York. This would appeal to customers looking for support for their Google products. Meanwhile, Baidu is looking to build 1,000 driverless cars over the next three years. The likes of which would serve to commercialize autonomous taxis on a mass scale in China. As you can see, there is no shortage of exciting developments in the tech world today. With that in mind, could one of these five trending names be worth knowing now?Best Tech Stocks To Buy [Or Avoid] In June

Another major player in the tech space to know now would be Dell Technologies Inc. For the most part, Dell is a household name for many now. The company’s portfolio includes personal computers, digital acceleration services, and cloud storage solutions to name a few.
Given the current trajectory of organizations towards the digital space, Dell’s services would be in high demand now. Evidently, the company recently posted a record quarter in terms of revenue thanks to continued strength across its core divisions.
While Dell’s main business segments continue to ride industry tailwinds, the company is not sitting idly by. Earlier today, it was revealed that Dish Network, a major U.S. connectivity company, will be working with Dell. Specifically, Dish is planning to tap Dell’s offerings for its new U.S. 5G network.

Through said platform, ServiceNow aids organizations manage their digital workflows. As organizations continue to shift towards digital offices, digital workloads would also be growing. Accordingly, I could see investors eyeing NOW stock because of this.
For one thing, it has been an exciting time for ServiceNow recently. Firstly, NOW stock was revealed to be on Goldman Sachs’ (NYSE: GS) conviction buy list. Last week, GS analyst Kash Rangan suggested that ServiceNow’s customer base will likely grow moving forward. On the operational front, ServiceNow is now working with cybersecurity company Zscaler (NASDAQ: ZS) for its remote access security needs.
According to Zscaler, ServiceNow users have access to zero-trust connectivity, providing more comprehensive digital security solutions. These would decrease the burden of security teams, making them more efficient. With ServiceNow seemingly firing on all cylinders, could NOW stock be a top buy for you?
