Top Tech ‘Buy’ Stocks: Citi Analyst

A few internet names are on fire, Citigroup's Mark May said Tuesday after initiating coverage on the sector following the closing bell.

"Every stock except one has a P/E below 20," he said. "It's a good group to look at."

That one stock was rated a "sell."

On CNBC's "Fast Money," May had high praise for Google, on which he held a "buy" rating, with a price target of $1,100 per share.

"Google is just one of the best companies in the universe," he said.

May noted the company's positioning in mobile and video, as well as its growth rate of "20 percent-plus growing at a 6 percent free-cash-flow yield."

Amazon.com was also rated a "buy," with $340 price target.

May said that he wasn't looking at the company on a sum-of-the-parts basis, but noted that like eBay, it had a cloud computing component – Amazon Web Services – that was "on fire."

Netflix was May's "highest rated 'neutral' stock," he said, based on the streaming video service's subscription price, which hasn't been scheduled to rise.

Facebook was also rated "neutral."

"We'd like more clarity and transparency," May said.

May also issued "buy" ratings on Yahoo and eBay and "neutral" ratings onLinkedIn and Facebook, which he called "a young company" from which he would like to see "more clarity and transparency."

Only one stock on his list had a "sell" rating: OpenTable.

"It's not that it's a bad company, we just think at 30 times earnings, 15-16 times EBITDA, it's overvalued vs. the kind of growth we expect over a three-year period," he said.
