Tech Stocks: Losers Far Outnumber Stock Price Winners In 2015
For the 40 publicly traded companies on our watch list, 2015 wasn't the greatest of years with only 15 recording stock price gains during the year and 25 seeing their share prices decline – some by significant double digits.
How does that compare to the stock market overall? Last year was definitely a mixed bag with the Dow Jones Index down 2.23 percent in 2015 while the Nasdaq was up 5.73 percent.
Here's a look at who was up and who was down in 2015 starting with companies with the biggest gains in share price, based on stock closing prices between Dec. 31, 2014, and Dec. 31, 2015.
