Technology stocks were little changed in mid-day trade with shares of technology companies in the S&P 500 down less than 0.1% today.

In company news, Digital Power Corp. ( DPW ) shares nearly doubled in value Wednesday, soaring to a 13-year high after the company was awarded a 5-year military contract to produce low-voltage DC/DC converters for Israel Aerospace Industries.

Israel Aerospace will use the converter modules to power its TAMAM Modular Azimuth Position System navigation system, which is used by the Israel Defense Forces in tactical warfare. According to the companies, the devices are designed for use in varied combat situations and are suitable for installation on a wide range of platforms, including self-propelled guns, artillery radars, rocket launchers, mortars and observation vehicles.

DPW shares were up 70.5% in recent trade at $2.64 each after earlier streaking to the best price since October 2000 at $3.05 a share, a 96.7% advance.
