5 Zacks #1 Rank Technology Mutual Funds

More often than not the technology sector is likely to report above par earnings than other sectors as the demand for technology and innovation remains high. However, technology stocks are considered to be more volatile than other sector specific stocks. In order to minimize this volatility almost all tech funds adopt a growth management style with a focus on strong fundamentals and a relatively longer investment horizon. Investors having an above par appetite for risk and fairly long investment horizon should park some of their savings in these funds.

Below we will share with you 5 top-rated technology mutual funds. Each has earned a Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) as we expect these mutual funds to outperform their peers in the future.
