Sentiment has been most bullish this morning on two tech companies.
Sourcefire (NASDAQ: FIRE) reported stellar earnings yesterday afternoon, which prompted several analysts to upgrade their price targets on the stock. The company hit a fresh 52-week high earlier this morning, as shares surged over 23%.
Procera Networks (NASDAQ: PKT) has rallied nearly 2% on the session after having its price target raised at Sterne Agee. Earlier this morning, the company announced that it had received a $2 million follow-on order from a leading North American Cable MO. The company was added to the Nasdaq just last December.
Anthera Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: ANTH) is trading down over 5% on the session after reporting fourth quarter earnings.
Ford (NYSE: F) announced that it was increasing the compensation of its board members, but has not seen any significant, specific negative news. Ford could be getting hit by deteriorating European macroeconomic conditions.
Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) stood atop this list yesterday and repeats again this morning. Shares of the company are currently trading near $513.
Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) is trading down nearly 5% on the session. Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) announced yesterday that it was unveiling a new streaming video service that would compete with Netflix directly. This comes after Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) announced a similar plan earlier in the year.
Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) reported disappointing results after the bell yesterday. The company's stock has been trading lower after the company cited a shortage of hard drive components affecting sales of upper-end PCs.
Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), like Apple, was also a popular stock yesterday. Reports are out that Google is currently working to develop glasses that would stream digital information to the wearer.
