Tech stocks are skyrocketing – just in the last year, Apple is up 33.8%, Advanced Micro Devices up 57%, Alphabet up 65.3%, and Nvidia up 125%! if you’re not already diversifying your portfolio with tech stocks, now is the time.
Investors wanting to get in on the boom may worry about higher entry prices, as well as mitigating risk. Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) can get you exposure to all sectors, at an affordable price point. And if you select the right ones, you can pursue a larger investment in tech and more options overall for your portfolio.
