Technology stocks were enjoying a late lift this afternoon, with shares of tech companies in the S&P 500 increasing 0.4%.

In company news, Intuit ( INTU ) climbed to a best-ever $140.25 a share on Wednesday after the financial software company reported above-consensus results in its fiscal Q3 and forecast a Q4 profit also topping analyst views.

Excluding non-recurring items, the company earned $3.90 per share, beating the Capital IQ consensus by $0.03 per share. Revenue rose 10.3% over the same quarter last year to $2.54 billion, nudging past the $2.5 billion Street view.

For Q4, the company is expecting per-share earnings in a range of $0.16 to $0.18, exceeding the consensus view by at least a penny.
