Today’s Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Activision Blizzard and Zynga Inc.
Tech stocks fell sharply Wednesday, sending the Nasdaq to its worst single day decline in over three months. The Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 1.27 percent to close at 6,824.39. Financial stocks surged to help lift the Dow Jones Industrial Average 0.44 percent to close at 23,940.68.
“This is a dramatic rotation out of high-octane tech stocks, which is exacerbated by passive flows into index funds,” said Ian Winer, head of the equities division at Wedbush Securities.
“Since so many portfolios had the same positions and are rebalancing, what we are seeing is a mini unwind of momentum stocks. It is difficult to say whether it will spill over to the rest of the market at some point,” Winer said.
