    #1 Ranked Technology Mutual Funds By Zacks Investment Research

    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 the short run. In order to minimize this short term volatility almost all tech funds adopt a growth management style with a focus on strong fundamentals and a relatively higher investment horizon. Investors having an above par appetite for risk and fairly longer investment horizon should park 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. To view the Zacks Rank and past performance of all technology funds, investors can click here to see the complete list of funds.
