With Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference beginning today, and the spike in semiconductor mergers, we decided to take a look at the best volatile large-cap stocks investors should buy. New companies in any industry can be volatile. But in the technology industry, younger companies are especially volatile, due to new technologies coming out, and new start-ups being created. To alleviate risk, many tech companies acquire younger start-ups before they take off. By doing this, the larger companies eliminate possible competitors, or broaden their business lines so they are not single product or service companies. Here are some of the best volatile tech stocks TheStreet Quant Ratings says you should consider looking at. Number 3 is Skyworks Solutions. With an 'A+' rating, the company's strengths can be seen in its revenue growth and notable return on equity. 2nd is, Analog Devices. This rating is also an 'A+.' Analog Devices thrives in its solid stock price performance and expanding profit margins. Number 1 is Avago Technologies Limited. With an 'A+' rating, the company flourishes in its revenue growth and increase in net income. TheStreet Ratings are algorithmic stock picks based on 32 major data points. S&P 500 stocks rated 'buy' yielded a 16-and-a-half-percent return in 2014, beating the S&P 500 Total Return Index by more than 300 basis points.
