3 Most-Loved Tech Stocks to Sell

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Investors really fell for a few tech stocks this year. And while some deserved your whole-hearted admiration, some others could be trouble and may well break your heart next year.

Earlier this month we put a spotlight on the top five biggest gainers in tech. Those were the stocks that shot up the highest in the sector. This time around, taking a far more cautious view of the winners, we've found three beloved stocks that face major challenges in the year ahead.

Shares of Marvell (MRVL - Get Report), Apple (AAPL - Get Report) and Netflix (NFLX - Get Report) were all deep in the green as investors kept the momentum alive. Great run, but instead of applause, maybe you should hustle some of those winnings into the bank.

Netflix's wonderfully ridiculous run-up was fueled by the assumption that it was the best way to play Net TV. And Apple's introduction of the iPad and new iPhone was a phenomenal product performance that won't be easy to beat. And by looking at the stock, you'd never know Marvell blew an opportunity that could set it back for a while.

Here are the three of the hottest tech stocks and how they may burn you next year.
