Technology stocks were moderately higher today, with shares of tech companies in the S&P 500 holding on to a 0.3% advance in afternoon trading.

In company news, Model N ( MODN ) was higher Tuesday after the revenue-management software firm last night reported fiscal Q1 financial results exceeding analyst projections and forecast above-consensus revenue for the current quarter and the rest of the year in addition to calling for a narrower-than-expected FY17 net loss.

Excluding one-time items, the company recorded a net loss of $0.15 per share during the three months ended Dec. 31, coming in $0.02 per share under the Street view expecting a $0.17 per share adjusted loss. Revenue rose 14.7% over year-ago levels to $28.1 million, also beating the $27.3 million consensus.

For Q1, Model N is expecting an adjusted net loss of $0.28 to $0.26 per share on between $33.5 million to $34.0 million in revenue. That compares with the Street modeling a $0.21 per share net loss on $29.82 million in revenue during the three months ending in late March.

The company also sees an adjusted FY17 net loss of $0.66 to $0.69 per share while analysts are expecting a $0.74 per share adjusted net loss. Revenue this year is seen in a range of $130 million to $134 million compared with the $120.41 million Capital IQ consensus.

MODN shares were up over 5% at $9.70 each this afternoon, backing down from a prior advance to a session high of $10.90 a share.
