stocks remain hot — although perhaps not as hot as they were just a few weeks ago. A number of stocks have taken a big hit in the recent market sell-off.

From a long-term standpoint, however, that’s good news. The use of is only going to increase, providing strong growth opportunities for companies exposed to the trend. And the indiscriminate selling in tech, in particular, has left several stocks at more reasonable valuations.
These five stocks all look like potential opportunities to buy on the dip. Each addresses a different portion of the market — but all five should see -related revenue and profits grow for years to come. While none of the stocks are particularly cheap, they probably shouldn’t be. And they also might never again be as cheap as they are right now.
Any list of stocks simply has to include Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA ). The chipmaker’s dominant market position in GPUs (graphics processing units) sets it up perfectly for the hardware requirements of .
Indeed, as Tom Taulli pointed out in September, Nvidia’s opportunity in is expansive.
