After a three day sell off in the S&P 500, there are only 39 stocks that have remained positive, and only 25 of those have made gains of half a percent or more. We took a look at some of the smaller names in the index to see if they were holding up during the decline, but it seems that stocks are more or less getting hurt across the board. EXCEPT Apple and Google.

The S&P 500 is down about 3% over the last three days, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) was up 3.3% over the same period. Closely behind is Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), which was up 2.3% as of 3:30 today. The chart below shows percent change versus market capitalization of the S&P 500.
