Technology stocks were broadly higher, with shares of technology companies in the S&P 500 advancing almost 0.7%.

In company news, RadiSys Corp ( RSYS ) advanced Wednesday after the wireless infrastructure company reported preliminary Q1 results beating Wall Street expectations.

The company last night said it now expects to report a non-GAAP profit for the three months ended March 30 of $0.03 per share, up $0.02 over the mid-point of its prior guidance and also exceeding the Capital IQ consensus by $0.02 per share.

It also sees revenue climbing more than 10% over year-ago levels to $48.7 million, topping analyst estimates by around $700,000.

GAAP net loss during the quarter is projected in a range of $0.18 to $0.22 per share, with the company blaming non-cash charges associated with amortizing acquired assets and cash restructuring charges for much of the loss along with stock-based compensation.

RSYS shares were up almost 6% at $2.09 each, staying within relatively close range of its session high of $2.18 a share. The stock has traded within a 52-week range of $1.79 to $3.67 a share, falling nearly 1% over the past 12 months prior to Wednesday's price gain.
