High Growth Technology Portfolio Researched By “long-term-investments.blogspot.com“. Technology stocks are hot because they can boost your wealth in a very fast way if you bet on the next big theme. The current trends are smart phones and cloud computing. If you have had invested your money in a well diversified cloud computing portfolio, you should have realized a total return of 524 percent since January 2002. This represents a yearly return of 18.35 percent. Below is a list of 24 companies that have a business unit in this growth industry. SAP is currently the fastest growing cloud computing stock. Below the results are six companies with a positive dividend. Twenty IT-stocks have a current buy or better recommendation.
