  • ASX tech sector rises more than 7% in November and is up more than 20% YTD
  • Tech heavy NASDAQ rallies more than 10% in November and is up ~37% YTD
  • Findi leads November tech winners raising $37.6 million ahead of TSI India IPO and strong H1 FY24 results

The S&P/ASX 200 Info Tech [XIJ] index was up 7.03% in November and has now risen 21% for the year, surpassing the benchmark ASX 200 [XJO] which rose 3.81% in November and is up 0.69% YTD.

The NASDAQ index, the bellwether for the global tech sector, has also rallied by more than 37% in 2023 and is up 10% for November.

Growth sectors like tech have been gaining as it looks like central banks might be just starting to win the fight against inflation. The tech sector has been further boosted as artificial intelligence (AI) continues its run as a dominant investment theme in 2023.

Momentum for AI was sparked by the launch of ChatGPT a year ago in November 2022, which has helped fuelled growth for a wide range of tech companies including semiconductors and cloud computing.

This week US Federal Reserve governor Christopher Waller was taking a dovish tone suggesting the Fed may just be done with hiking rates.

“I am increasingly confident that policy is currently well positioned to slow the economy and get inflation back to 2%,” he says.

Waller says he could see a point where the Fed might start lowering rates.

“There is no reason to say we will keep it really high,” he says.

Meanwhile in a welcome surprise back home in Australia, the latest CPI figures show that the monthly inflation rate fell to 4.9% from 5.6% in October, beating expectations.

The lower inflation rate has pundits forecasting a slim chance of the RBA lifting rates at its December meeting next Tuesday, the final for 2023.

Whispir (ASX:WSP) rose after former Appen (ASX:APX) boss Mark Brayan-run Soprano Design lobbed an off-market takeover play for all shares in the tech company for 48c or ~$64 million.

Financial data provider IRESS (ASX:IRE) surged after announcing progress on its transformation strategy, along with an updated guidance for FY23 and FY24 earnings.

IRE says its transformation program has accelerated, with revenue growth in H2 of +2.6% versus H1. Cost base was more favourable in H2 compared to H1, driven by lower staff costs, and a lift in customer sentiment.

The company upgraded its guidance, increasing its FY23 underlying EBITDA estimate to $123m-$128m from its previous forecast $118m-$122m.

Global sports analytics company Catapult Group (ASX:CAT) also rose in November after announcing strong H1 FY24 results with MD and CEO Will Lopes saying “all key metrics for the first half delivered or exceeded against our expectations.”

He says the SaaS part of the business continues to be its growth engine, with annualised contract value growing by 21% on a constant currency basis year on year, and reaching nearly $124m.

“This growth, coupled with record level retention rate, meant that our SaaS revenue grew by 25% over the past 12 months,” Lopes says

He says results of a strong SaaS performance meant that during the half total revenue delivered nearly $77m, up 21% on pcp.

“More impressive, is that we were able to generate this growth while simultaneously reducing costs, significantly improving our margins, highlighting our operational leverage,” he says.
