On-demand CRM vendor RightNow Technologies led broad gains among Credit Suisse Disruptive Technology Portfolio stocks last week as a good profit forecast ignited the share price.

RightNow disclosed at its annual user group conference that its September earnings will come in at the high end of its revenue and profit guidance range. In the past, the company's hybrid perpetual/subscription licensing model has made earnings volatile, despite strong bookings and revenue growth. Investors welcomed the profit outlook, and the shares climbed precipitously in trading on Tuesday and Wednesday. The stock price rose 13.1% over the course of the week.

Last week, the Disruptive Technology Portfolio thoroughly outperformed the broader market. The index climbed 5.3%, while the S&P 500 rose only 1.4%. Overall, advances among portfolio-member stocks outnumbered declines by a ratio of 5-to-1, as 25 stocks made advances during the week, while only five lost ground.
