If you're looking for cheap shares and potentially long-term investments, go for the tech industry. Below are a couple of ideas.


As they got knocked out of the smartphone race pretty soon, their stock price dipped enormously. After a couple of non-exceptional years, they entered the 5G technology race. They've also appointed a new CEO, who focuses on unexplored technology segments, which means they can take control of a particular segment.

United Microelectronics Corp. (UMC)

They are better known as a Semiconductor Microchips Manufacturer, but they aren't the biggest. They are in second place, just behind Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, which automatically puts UMC stocks on the cheaper spectrum. So, why would you invest? Here's the catch:

In the End

Both of these companies are my choices and my ideas of the future market. My advice is, invest only in what you have researched, trust your gut, and don't bail out fast.
