Tech Geeks and Dotcom Investing: Marriage or Divorce?

A recent survey conducted for US Trust of the richest technology professionals confirmed that wealthy Americans working in technology maintain their opinion that dotcom stocks are still a viable investment.

The survey was conducted in the Spring when most of the technology stocks fell dramatically. Among those surveyed, participants reported that their own portfolios consisted of 40 percent in technology stocks.

While almost 30 percent of portfolios consisted of the participants' own company stocks, reports indicate that more caution plays in owning your own stocks: 42 per cent said that too much of their net worth was invested internally.
