TSX technology stocks have been feeling some tremors after billionaire Elon Musk announced last week that he would be scrapping his plans to buy Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR, TWTR: US). As per some reports, the social media giant is said to be exploring legal actions.
The TSX tech index saw a loss of nearly four per cent on Monday, July 11, which contributed to the main index's decline of about one per cent.
Amid all this, however, growth-focused Canadian investors could look at some discounted TSX technology stocks, like Constellation (TSX: CSU), CGI (TSX: GIB.A), Lightspeed (TSX: LSPD) etc., that could provide them exposure to the growing tech space and possible future gains.
