Thus, investors with higher risk appetites should consider CTS (NYSE:CTS), Universal Electronics (NASDAQ:UEIC), Aviat Networks (NASDAQ:AVNW), and Franklin Wireless (FKWL) for their portfolios.The past year was no doubt one of the best years for tech stocks. This is apparent from the Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF’s (XLK) nearly 65% gain over this period.
