In a new report, Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju focused on the outlook for the tech sector in 2016.

After the extraordinary 2015 outperformance by, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB), Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: GOOGL) and Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), Ju suggests that capex levels may have peaked headed into 2016.

“We submit that as we look at the aggregate CapEx dollars deployed sector-wide, the incremental dollars (or the first derivative) have already started to moderate, which to us signals a harvest period after an extended period of investment to keep up with increasing global consumer demand for services on the heels of mobile adoption as well as the development and rollout of new products to help monetize against the new traffic,” Ju explains.
