This month my favorite small-cap stocks to buy are largely technology stocks, which is not surprising as consumer electronics, IT providers and other technology firms are seeing strong sales even as other sectors suffer. That's because a mix of hot new gadgets like the Amazon ( AMZN) Kindle and the Apple ( AAPL) iPhone 4 remain hot commodities even when consumers aren't spending on other big-ticket items. Also, while companies are reluctant to hire new workers, they simply must upgrade computer systems to stay competitive and boost productivity without adding more bodies to the payroll. These trends have resulted in impressive earnings for the quarter across a number of technology stocks. Here are my favorite small-cap stocks in the tech sector now.
