Due to a rollercoaster ride last 2023 and a 12% decline in April, I must admit, it can be hard to stay optimistic for Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META). However, closer scrutiny of its solid financials reveals potential. Fundamentals typically drive long-term outcomes, so Meta’s recent ROE is worth noting.

The company surged approximately 490% in under two years but recently experienced a significant market cap decline of around $200 billion after its Q1 results. Wall Street revised target prices downward, sparking debate on whether to buy or sell. Despite the setback, some investors see an opportunity to invest based on Meta’s AI-driven growth trajectory.

Q1 adjusted earnings of $4.71 per share surpassed estimates, doubling year-over-year (YOY), with revenues meeting consensus estimates at $36.5 billion, up 27% from the prior-year period. Meta Platforms anticipates Q2 revenue to range between $36.5 to $39 billion, with CAPEX increasing to $35 to $40 billion and FY2024 expenses projected at $96 to $99 billion.

Amazon (AMZN)

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) stock experienced a significant rebound recently, shining amidst market uncertainties. Its focus on profitable growth, forward-looking strategies and strong demand for AWS cloud services are promising signs for 2024. Cost-cutting measures and expanding AI capabilities further enhance its appeal.

The e-commerce giant revealed plans to put out a $9 billion investment in Singapore for the next four years on its cloud computing plans. That also comes after Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) regional investment, showing more interest in Southeast Asia. The investment will aid in increasing demand for cloud services and strengthen Singapore’s position as a location for regional innovation.

Moreover, Amazon has gained from generative AI apps like ChatGPT. The company heavily invested in AI research and development, making it a core strength. AI applications such as chatbots, product recommendations, robots and inventory management enhance operations and revenue streams. Amazon’s unique generative AI platform, Amazon Bedrock, stands out, offering advanced capabilities for AWS customers.

Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL)

Among all the tech companies, Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) stands out due to its excellent growth. But its appeal goes beyond this growth profile, as Alphabet provides the kind of earnings stability that’s hard to come by in the tech sector. With a target share price of $195.92, Alphabet is a top tech stock worth considering for investors.

The company remains a dominant advertising platform, with Google and YouTube attracting billions of visits monthly. Q1 2024 saw a 15% revenue increase and a 57% surge in net income, driven by Google Cloud’s growing contribution, now over 10% of total revenue. In other news, Alphabet’s talks to acquire HubSpot (NYSE:HUBS) reportedly progress as the marketing software provider beats Q1 estimates. Bloomberg sources mention ongoing discussions, though no deal is finalized. Reuters reported Alphabet’s talks with Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), potentially leading to its largest acquisition.
