The Best (And Worst) First-Quarter Technology Vendor Stocks


Tech Stock Gainers Slightly Outnumber Losers In Q1

It's been a long, cold winter in much of the country and for some IT vendors it's been a tough three months on Wall Street. Of the 36 vendors whose shares we track, 19 gained in value during the first calendar quarter of 2014, 15 lost value and one was unchanged.

The broader market indexes also went in different directions. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 16,457.66 on March 31, down 0.72 percent for the first calendar quarter. The NASDAQ Composite, in contrast, closed at 4,198.99, up 0.54 percent for the quarter.
