“In 2009, the tech sector was up 50 percent and so far this year, while we started fairly well in the first quarter, we’ve had a big dropoff since late April,” Allen told CNBC.

“Innovation is continuing at a very fast pace, with trends like mobile computing and cloud computing," he said. "I wouldn’t say that the space is cheap or expensive, but we’re finding a lot of good opportunities right now.”

Allen says he favors the undervalued “pure-play software businesses” such as CA and Microsoft .
