Tech Stocks: Stock Price Winners Outnumber Losers In The Third Quarter Of 2017
Stock markets have been on an upward swing in 2017 with few lengthy periods of declines. For the third quarter the Dow Jones Index was up 4.94 percent while the Nasdaq was up 5.79 percent.
Technology stocks have been part of those gains, although the ratio of stock price winners to losers was narrower in the third quarter than in the first half of the year. In the quarter 26 of the publicly traded IT companies on our watch list recorded stock gains while 16 suffered price declines.
