Tech stocks from social networking giants have taken a beating in recent months—punished for privacy and data-leaking scandals and slowing user growth. But neither controversy nor a brewing trade war can stop global society’s shift to consuming media on the Internet. “Unless someone convinces me that all of us are going to go back to TVs and radios, I still think digital advertising is a place where the growth will continue,” says Melda Mergen, deputy global head of equities for Columbia Threadneedle Investments.

That’s good news for Facebook and Alphabet, whose stocks were both in bear market territory this fall, providing a rare chance for investors to get in at a discount. Facebook, for one, is trading at its lowest valuation ever, just 19 times earnings—about the average of the S&P 500 and half as expensive as it was a year ago. “This may end up being one of the last buying opportunities,” says Dan Chung, CEO and CIO of Fred Alger Investments, who owns both stocks. With that said, here are our picks for 2019

PICKS:

  1. Alphabet (GOOGL)

  2. Facebook (FB)

  3. Activision Blizzard (ATVI)

  4. Take-Two Interactive Software (TTWO)

  5. Texas Instruments (TXN)
