10 Tech Stocks Poised to Break Out

This group is bound to provide its share of winners in due time

   

The tech sector currently offers an abundance of charts that should capture the attention of those inclined to technical analysis. In fact, 10 stocks in the large- and mid-cap range are on the verge of breaking past resistance and moving out to new highs.

While this process may be delayed by broader market weakness in the days and weeks ahead, this group of stocks is bound to provide its share of winners in due time — especially if the Select Sector SPDR Technology ETF (NYSE:XLK) continues to make new highs. A handful of these are stocks that we’ve highlighted in past articles and that have not yet broken out. But they continue to print compelling formations and are, therefore, worthy of ongoing attention.
