QLogic

Change: -16.6%

QLogic shares have been on a downward spiral the last two quarters. The company's stock closed at $17.76 on March 30. CEO Simon Biddiscombe no doubt hopes that trend might be reversed after QLogic previewed a new technology last month that puts high-speed SSD storage on a SAN host bus adapter to allow multiple servers to share their flash-based cache.
