Interested in adding some growth to your portfolio? For a closer look at some interesting names from the tech sector, we ran a screen.

We began by screening the tech sector for stocks that have outperformed the market over the last quarter, with quarterly performance above 10%.

We then screened for those stocks with strong sales trends, comparing growth in revenue to growth in accounts receivable. Since accounts receivable is the portion of revenue not yet received, and there is no guarantee the money will ever be received, the smaller the portion of revenue made up of receivables the healthier the company's revenue.

We screened for stocks seeing faster growth in revenue than accounts receivable year-over-year, as well as accounts receivable comprising a smaller portion of current assets over the same time period.
