Top Tech Stocks
Technology stocks were little changed this afternoon, with shares of tech companies in the S&P 500 climbing almost 0.1%.
In company news, Xplore Technologies Corp. ( XPLR ) declined Thursday, with shares of the manufacturer of rugged mobile personal computers falling to within 8 cents of their $1.72-a-share all-time low after last night reporting fiscal Q4 revenue trailing the analyst mean.
Revenue retreated 18% during the three months ended March 31 compared with the same reporting period last year to $16.9 million, missing the Capital IQ consensus by around $1.8 million as supply-chain constraints delayed delivery of multiple customer orders into the current quarter.
The company also recorded a $0.04 per share net loss during the January-to-March period, more than halving its year-ago net loss of $0.09 per share and beating the Street view by a penny.
