Tech industry reclaims its dominant position in US stock market :-

Technology stocks are trending big-time as investors latch on to innovative companies racing ahead in a slow-growth world.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq is the best performing major US stock index this year, gaining 6.6% as the Standard & Poor’s 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial averages have wavered between small gains and losses.

The industry has re-established itself as the dominant sector in the US stock market and currently accounts for 20% of the value of the S&P 500 index. That is tech’s largest share since the dot-com bubble, and makes it the biggest sector in the market.
