Hit By The Stock Market's Dive Late In The Year, Many Tech Companies Suffer Share Price Declines In 2018


Overall, the markets had their worst year since the financial crisis of 2008 with most of the losses coming in the fourth quarter. The Dow Jones closed the year at 23,327.46, down 5.63 percent from its 2017 close. The tech-heavy Nasdaq fared a bit better, closing at 6,635.28, down 3.88 percent from its 2017 close.

Twenty-three of the 44 technology companies on our watch list recorded declines in their stock prices in 2018, many by hefty double-digit percentages. Only 21 managed to increase the value of their stocks in 2018. (And a couple of those were due to acquisitions in which the acquiring company paid an above-market premium.)

And going forward our watch list will include Dell Technologies, which went public on the New York Stock Exchange on Dec. 28 at $46.00 per share and closed out the year at $48.87, up 6 percent.

Here's a look at who was up and who was down in 2018, starting with companies with the biggest gains in share price, based on stock closing prices on Dec. 29, 2017, and Dec. 31, 2018.
