Investorpedia tipped: In its article The Top 10 Technology Stocks for 2016, Investorpedia wrote: "Arrow Electronics Inc. (NYSE: ARW) is one of the world’s largest distributors of electric components and computer products.
"During 2015, ARW struggled primarily due to unfavorable currency fluctuations. However, the company has been seasonal toward the end of the year (2015), especially in Europe, and is expected to carry that positive momentum into the New Year.
"Arrow has packaged its core products and value-added services into a comprehensive solution that lowers the cost base over a product's lifetime, yet adds higher client engagement.
"With a diversified product line and successful current strategy, Arrow is well positioned to grow to a target price of $65."
