The miniature tech bubble of 2013 has come to its inevitable conclusion with an unholy stock price shellacking for the sector’s high flyers. Facebook Inc. stock, for instance, went from $24 (U.S.) in June of last year to $70, only to fall $14 since.

Despite the carnage, few investors doubt that profits in the technology sector will continue to grow faster than the economy or the S&P 500 average over the long term.
