Tech Stocks Rally May Continue

Tech stocks have rallied strongly so far this year mirroring the broader U.S. market. While the S&P 500 is up 5.29% YTD, the technology sector in the index is up 5.89%. After the energy sector, the tech sector is the best performing sector YTD. Unlike financials and others, the tech industry has continues to rebound since the credit crisis. Strong demand for their products and services in emerging markets drives the earnings of technology companies despite slumping demand in the domestic and other developed markets.While most investors abandoned this sector after the dot-com bubble, in the current environment adding a few technology stocks to one’s portfolio is a wise strategy.
