Top 5 Tech Stocks To Buy For 2019

For the first time in a long while, there has been some hope surrounding struggling Pandora Media Inc (NYSE:P) stock.

In the wake of lackluster fourth quarter numbers, Pandora stock stumbled to near all-time lows of around $4.25. Since then, though, the stock has bounced to above $5.

The driver of the mini-rebound in P stock is the company’s acquisition of digital audio tech firm AdsWizz. That acquisition has forced some Wall Street analysts to upgrade the stock, like Raymond James.

The whole idea behind the recent bullishness is that the AdsWizz acquisition accelerates Pandora’s ad tech roadmap, thrusts the company more deeply into the secular growth audio advertising market, and opens up new revenue opportunities.

More specifically, because AdsWizz counts Pandora competitors like Spotify and SoundCloud as customers, the AdWizz acquisition actually gives Pandora much more access to the broad audio streaming market.

That means that Pandora stock is becoming more of a play on the entire digital audio advertising market, and less of a play on the Pandora platform winning in that digital audio advertising market.
