The technology sector is having a bad year, so far. Tech stocks can be growth stocks but factors like war and inflation can turn the market bearish.

At such times, some investors might remove money from these stocks and place them in more stable investments, including bonds.

The S&P/TSX Capped Information Technology Index has lost nearly 35 per cent year-to-date (YTD). But going into June there seems to be a sense of optimism with the TSX Composite Index posting gains for six straight days.

So, let’s look at some TSX tech stocks that make for an interesting watch in June.
