Top Tech Stocks
Technology stocks managed to eke out small gains in recent Wednesday trade, with shares of tech companies in the S&P 500 rising slightly less than 0.2% this afternoon.
In company news, Accenture ( ACN ) climbed to a new record high on Wednesday, adding slightly more than 1% in new value today to reach a best-ever $131.35 a share after the technology consulting firm said it was buying a smaller, privately held rival, IBB Consulting, for an undisclosed sum.
The deal is expected to strengthen Accenture's reach with communications, media and other technologies companies. About 160 employees from IBB's current workforce are expected to stay with the company once the transaction closes.
