Hedlund pointed to Cisco Systems as a positive weather-vane for the sector: "We were quite encouraged by the action in Cisco after its earnings call," she said.
She noted the attractive valuation, low debt and high cash levels currently found in such big-cap tech firms as Oracle.
Kay recommends companies able to utilize "Web 2.0 capabilities." Specifically, he likes VMware, Apple, Google, eBay and Amazon.com.
