A number of technology companies could make for a safe buy right now, Nuveen Managing Director Stephanie Link told CNBC on Thursday.
"Anyone that has really strong fundamentals, but the stocks are down, from where they reported earnings and earnings actually went higher" are good picks, the head of active equities research for Nuveen affiliate TIAA Investments said on "Closing Bell."
Tech stocks, once the high flyers, have taken a beating in recent months. Facebook, Apple, Amazon and Google parent company Alphabet, part of the group known as "FAANG," have all fallen into correction territory. Facebook, the hardest hit, is down almost 40 percent from its record high in July.
"I'm also even looking at Facebook, because it seems to have stabilized and that stock is quite cheap," she explained.
Salesforce is "interesting," Link said, but that stock may be a little more on the discretionary side.
"It's just not a cheap stock," she explained. "So you kind of have to pick your spots there."
The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite dipped 0.25 percent on Thursday to close at 7,273.08. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 27.59, snapping a three-day winning streak, and the slipped 0.2 percent as investors await news of China-U.S. trade negotiations.
Disclosure: Link owns shares of Cisco, Salesforce, Microsoft, Intel and Facebook.
