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

We began by screening the tech sector for stocks with high growth projections, with 5-year projected EPS growth rates above 15%.

Then we screened for those with bullish sentiment from short sellers, with significant decreases in shares shorted month-over-month representing at least 1.5% of share float. This indicates that short sellers are less bearish on these names than they were a month ago.
