Ivy Science & Technology A Fund

Waddell185For many investors, the allure of small caps is the possibility of finding the next mega company. With that in mind, a tech fund can be a good way to play this.

But in today’s world, technology is quite diverse — including the Internet, mobile, biotech, cleantech and so on. Of course, that is actually the strength of the Ivy Science & Technology A Fund (WSTAX). It looks not just for the typical tech operators, but also those companies that are trailblazing healthcare.

The strategy has definitely been a winner. For the past three years, the average return was almost 19%, including a 36.3% climb for the past year.

Some of the top holdings include Aspen Technology (AZPN), Cree (CREE) and Alliance Data Systems (ADS).
