Netflix Stock – 10 Best Data Stocks to Buy Now

In this article, we will take a look at the 10 best data stocks to buy now based on the data of over 860 hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey. You can skip our detailed analysis of the data industry and go directly to see the 5 Best Data Stocks to Buy Now.

The data industry may be one of the most diverse and complex industries out there, making it hard to clump together all the sectors falling under it. Big data, data science, analytics, and security sectors are only a few areas of the data industry that the population is generally more familiar with, but they are certainly not the only sectors falling under this vast and all-encompassing industry.

Owing to the magnanimity of the data industry itself, it’s no surprise that the industry and its sub-areas are teeming with various unique companies specializing in a plethora of tech-related businesses. Perhaps this is why the industry itself has been one of the largest and most profitable for years, and will likely continue to be the same in the future. To drive the point home, Market Research Future (MRFR) compiled a report on the market size of this industry, through which it revealed that in 2019, the global data analytics market alone brought in $22,998.8 million in revenue, a value that is expected to increase at a CAGR of 28.9% to $132.9 billion in 2026. Big data market size is demonstrating similar patterns, with it being valued at $138.9 billion in 2020 and expected to rise to $229.4 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 10.6%.

Suffice it to say, the data industry is enormous and is growing larger every year. This has been attributed to the growing use of and need for the internet in general, awareness of the Internet of Things (IoT), and the rising need for more professionals in the industry. A report by Dice Analytics said the demand for data scientists increased by 50% in 2020 across key industries like healthcare, telecommunications, media/entertainment and fintech.

The industry also seems to be gaining more traction in recent years due to new and emerging trends, such as the emergence of self-driving cars and AI-controlled drones. Cloud computing is another new trend in the industry, whereby vast data stores can be accessed immediately and without the use of on-premises equipment. Today, big companies like Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), Hulu, Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER), Alphabet, Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG), Salesforce.com, Inc. (NYSE: CRM), Oracle Corporation (NYSE: ORCL) and Airbnb, Inc. (NASDAQ: ABNB) are defined by their algorithms that make decisions by processing huge datasets.

As millions of people around the world come online and use internet services, the global data of consumers would only grow exponentially in the future, boosting data-based companies and related stocks. That’s why in this article we will discuss some of the best data stocks to buy now. The stocks mentioned in our list were selected based on multiple factors, including hedge fund popularity (based on data of 800+ hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey), growth potential and analysts’ ratings.

Like the data industry, the hedge fund industry is also going through drastic changes. The entire hedge fund industry is feeling the reverberations of the changing financial landscape. Its reputation has been tarnished in the last decade, during which its hedged returns couldn’t keep up with the unhedged returns of the market indices. On the other hand, Insider Monkey’s research was able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that outperformed the S&P 500 ETFs by more than 124 percentage points since March 2017. Between March 2017 and February 26th 2021 our monthly newsletter’s stock picks returned 197.2%, vs. 72.4% for the SPY. Our stock picks outperformed the market by more than 124 percentage points (see the details here). We were also able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that significantly underperformed the market. We have been tracking and sharing the list of these stocks since February 2017 and they lost 13% through November 16th. That’s why we believe hedge fund sentiment is an extremely useful indicator that investors should pay attention to.
