The technology sector has outperformed the retailers this year by almost 20 percent. Is there still upside potential or should investors start looking elsewhere? Rob Enderle, principal analyst of Enderle Group, and Patricia Edwards, CIO of Storehouse Partners, shared their investment strategies.
“Tech’s looking pretty strong,” Enderle told CNBC.
“And as good as tech’s been, it’s likely to get better as we get into the fourth quarter because there’s so much money pointed at it… The consumers are looking fairly strong and the incentives to come back and buy are good.” (Read below for his full stock picks.)

In the meantime, Edwards said although retail is a tough space, consumers are still likely to spend money.
“The consumer is hurting, but the consumer is still going to spend,” she said. “And they’re going to spend in some interesting ways.”
