Here it is – your fortnightly tech stocks wrap

 

Industry focus

Earlier this week, research institute Indeed Hiring Lab released a report on the fastest growing tech skills now required by employers in the past five years. Six skills grew over 1,000 per cent and one was up a whopping 4,162 per cent.

Research on five years of job postings found that being able to use open-source utility tool Docker is the fastest growing skill required by employers. Docker is an application which places software in containers rather then virtual machines.

Essentially containers help you get the most out of your computer hardware and software resources.

Here’s the top six fastest growing skills:

  1. Docker (4,162 per cent)
  2. IoT (1,994 per cent)
  3. Ansible (1,292 per cent)
  4. Kafka (1,216 per cent)
  5. Azure (1,107 per cent)
  6. Spark (1,068 per cent)

Meanwhile, Switzerland is more associated with the finance sector than tech, but a US non-profit RISC-V Foundation (which sets the standard for core chip architecture) is moving to the neutral European country.

Its crossing the Atlantic over concerns of geopolitical disruption – mostly between the US and China. It does not want to lose Chinese members which include Alibaba and Huawei.

 

Small cap spotlight

Tech small caps gained a modest 2.5 per cent in the last fortnight but are up as much as 24 per cent in the last 12 months.

Smart Marine Systems (ASX:SMS) led the pack, gaining 65 per cent despite having no news. It has been an anti-shark software provider but is now seeking to diversify into beach safety and environmental monitoring.

Despite a 10 per cent retreat yesterday, blockchain play Identitii (ASX:ID8) still sits 63 per cent higher than a fortnight ago.

It is partnering with Californian secure messaging and collaboration company Symphony Communication Services. Symphony’s clients will be able to use Identitii’s software.

Buddy Technologies (ASX:BUD) surged 45 per cent after finding a Chinese buyer for its smart-lighting platform.

Despite it being a good fortnight for the sector some of the biggest yearly gainers lost ground. Accounts receivable play IODM (ASX:IOD) fell 30 per cent in the last fortnight but still sits on a 900 per cent yearly gain.

The only other stock that has more than quadrupled is Netlinkz (ASX:NET), which is up 452 per cent.

Here are all the ASX small cap technology stocks and their performance in the past fortnight:
