Technology stocks were mostly lower today, with shares of tech companies in the S&P 500 declining about 0.3%.
In company news, SunEdison Inc. ( SUNE ) rose Monday after the solar-power developer today replaced several senior managers at its affiliated firms, TerraForm Power ( TERP ) and TerraForm Global ( GLBL ).
SunEdison Chief Financial Officer Brian Wuebbels will become chief executive at both TerraForm companies, replacing Carlos Domenech, in addition to continuing in his current position. Also, SunEdison director Peter Blackmore is leaving the company's board to become board chairman at TerraForm Power and TerraForm Global while Rebecca Cranna was named CFO at the two companies, succeeding Alegandro Hernandez.
SunEdison also replaced several other board members at the TerraForm companies, which said the changes are aimed at aligning their strategic focus more to "acquiring projects from its sponsor, SunEdison, with less reliance on third-party acquisitions."
