NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQQ), the biggest technology exchange traded fund, has risen 20% since the end of August, almost twice that of the broader S&P 500 Index, powered by an increase in the shares of Apple (AAPL - Get Report) and Google (GOOG - Get Report).But investors in tech ETFs could have gotten bigger gains elsewhere. PowerShares QQQ Trust's underlying index is the Nasdaq-100 of the largest domestic and international non-financial securities listed on the namesake exchange. Rival ETFs, for instance, load up on Internet stocks and Chinese shares. Some tech ETFs trailed the PowerShares QQQ Trust, which has more than $20 billion in assets.
