Investors may want to use ETFs that give them exposure to technology and industrial stocks, because last year’s hot sectors—health care and utilities—have yet to pick up in 2012, according to an article on Barron’s.

The article recommends the following funds as they feature top-10 holdings with heavyweights like IBM, Apple, Exxon Mobil and Microsoft:

  • The iShares S&P 500 Growth Index (NYSEArca: IVW)
  • The iShares Russell 1000 Growth Index (NYSEArca: IWF)
  • WisdomTree Large Cap Growth (NYSEArca: ROI)
