CNBC Pro: Barclays reveals top picks and ‘names that screen poorly’ in global tech

Analysts at Barclays have picked their “potential” winners and losers amongst consumer technology companies, naming stocks set to do well – or badly – when factors such as the ease of replicating selection, logistical intensity and the value of the good are taken into consideration.

“We think it’s still too early to declare the AI (artificial intelligence) “winners” and “losers” in the consumer internet space. Instead, we think the right thing for investors to do at pivotal times like today is to focus on previous major shifts in technology,” the analysts wrote in a Sept. 12 note entitled “a framework for generative AI success in consumer internet.”
