Top Tech Stocks
Technology stocks sat out the uptick for most industry sectors today, with shares of tech companies in the S&P 500 remaining on a 0.6% slide lower.
In company news, shares of digital manufacturer Proto Labs ( PRLB ) turned higher Tuesday after the digital manufacturing company today said it has settled a patent-infringement dispute with ICO Products by agreeing to a licensing deal allowing the rival firm to continue using some of its proprietary technology to produce injection-molded parts.
In exchange for the license agreement, Proto Labs ( PRLB ) received an undisclosed amount of money in addition to an equity stake in ICO Products. The agreeement also provides the company with the option of taking an even larger stake in ICO in the future.

PRLB shares were up over 2% at $51.25 apiece, slipping 10 cents from their session high.
