Technology stocks have been all the rage on Wall Street recently.

Tech has powered the Nasdaq to all-time highs, even with the coronavirus crash back in March.

But the big question for analysts is whether the surge in technology stocks is sustainable.

Valuations continue to skyrocket as the economy falters amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The S&P 500 Technology Sector SPDR ETF (NYSEARCA: XLK) — an exchange-traded fund tracking some of the biggest technology stocks — jumped more than 64% since reaching a low in March 2020.

XLK covers companies ranging from Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) and Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) to Nvidia Corp. (Nasdaq: NVDA) and PayPal Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: PYPL).

The ETF has a 50-day moving average that’s $13 above the 200-day moving average, which is a bullish signal.

What’s more is that its one-year gains are 45.5% — outpacing the S&P 500’s gains of 16.8%.

Technology ETF Soars to New Heights
