John Burbank’s Passport Capital seems to become bullish on tech stocks.

Breaking down the portfolio by sector allocation, the share of financial stocks far outstrips the consumer discretionary, with the former claiming 40% and the latter 18%.  The tech industry makes about 11.7% of the portfolio, which is just a notch less than the energy sector share of 11.9%. In this article we will take a look at the top three new positions in terms of value from the tech sector.
