Key Words: Technology stocks could be on the verge of a bear market, warns investor who once ran the world’s biggest tech fund

That “comeuppance” could ultimately deliver a 20% shock to the top-heavy tech sector, Paul Meeks, portfolio manager at Independent Solutions Wealth Management told CNBC in a recent interview.

Any such hit, however, would present a screaming buy opportunity for those looking for discounts in the ech market, according to Meeks, who ran the world’s biggest tech fund for Merrill Lynch back during the dot-com boom.
