Traders weigh tech stocks ahead of Silicon Valley summit with Trump

Trading tech ahead of the Trump meeting: 5 plays

The "Fast Money" traders debated whether technology stocks will continue to climb after industry leaders meet with President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday.

After the election, the technology sector initially lagged the broader market, but it has started to participate in the recent gains. The key sector ETF gained more than 1.2 percent on Tuesday.

Trader Pete Najarian said that valuations are still fairly low in the technology sectors. Other sectors have rallied in anticipation of a pro-business environment under Trump's administration, but Najarian argued these same corporate tax cuts and repatriation of foreign earnings can benefit the tech sector, too.

While trader Steve Grasso agreed the technology sector can move higher from current levels, he said he believes that it's still "over-owned."

Investors should take a look at Amazon, trader Guy Adami said. The stock, which ended the day at $774.34, may retest $850 soon, he said.
