Technology stocks turned higher Tuesday afternoon, with shares of technology companies in the S&P 500 recently climbing about 0.1%.

In company news, Ruckus Wireless ( RKUS ) shares were higher in afternoon trade after the Wi-Fi services company was selected to replace medical device manufacturer Cyberonics ( CYBX ) in the S&P SmallCap 600 index after the close of trading Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Cyberonics is expected to soon close on its purchase of Sorin SpA and Standard & Poor's said the market capitalization of the combined companies - which is changing its name to LivaNova - is more representative of its mid-cap index.

RKUS shares were up almost 2% at $12.75 each, earlier topping out at $13.04 a share.

CYBX shares were narrowly higher at $62.76 apiece, rising about 0.4%.
