    • westcoastinvests: AMGN the often overlooked 9th biggest component of QQQ also up solidly.
      10/1/12
    • westcoastinvests: Also not a single of the 6 other top 10 components on QQQ are down even close to 1% so you are exaggerating greatly.

    • Bill Maurer: except for MSFT down over 1%, AAPL was down almost 1%, AMZN as well...

    • callseller: GOOG has been up daily since Sep 12th. Now GOOG and AAPL share price difference is $100!!

    • westcoastinvests: except at the time you made your post Bill none of them were down 1%
      10/1/12
    • westcoastinvests: And even at their lowest prints of the day only msft even reached 1% down, hence your exaggeration, that techs would be getting "crushed"

    • westcoastinvests: that said now you are getting a little more weakness as AAPL slides.
      10/1/12
    • Bill Maurer: actually, MSFT was down more than 1.1%, but the overall point was that tecs were really struggling and lucky to not be down way more.

    • westcoastinvests: There has been some late day selling but I do think it was unfair to say tech was really struggling.

    • Bill Maurer: dow was up over 100 pts and nasdaq couldn't even hold the flat line. that is struggling.

    • westcoastinvests: Or rather "crushed"
      10/1/12
    • westcoastinvests: so say that don't say "crushed" when something is flat, Nasdaq 100 is essentially AAPL, AAPL struggled today overall tech did fine
