The Technology sector has always represented an area of interest for investors. Actually, as we stated earlier, during the fourth quarter of 2013, three of the ten most popular stocks among hedge funds, have been technology companies: Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT).

During the previous month, hedge funds have been active and have increased or reduced holdings from their equity portfolios. Several of these moves involved technology stocks. In this piece we would like to take a look back and check out what have been some of the technology companies that hedge funds bought during March.

Elliott Management Corporation, led by Paul Singer, has around a third of its $4.4 billion equity portfolio held in the Technology sector. During the last month, Elliott revealed surging its position in Juniper Networks, Inc. (NYSE:JNPRto 36.9 million shares, from just some 2.6 million held previously.
