From the latest round of 13F filings, we have taken the tech stocks that hedge funds have been the most bullish on. Earlier today we have discussed the first five, with Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), or Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) as the leaders of the list. In this piece we will take a look at the second part of the list and discuss other five tech stocks in which most hedge funds disclosed significant long stakes.
