"That's where the largest overweight is in my portfolio, for the simple reason that the real cash flow yields, the valuations are as cheap as I saw in the fall of 2002, at the same time that net profit margins at 10 percent are near all-time highs," Sowerby told CNBC.

His enthusiasm for technology stocks is not dampened by downbeat numbers from such companies as Texas Industries.

"Even though TI guided down by about two to three cents on this quarter's earnings; names like Corning, Cisco, Harris Corporation
