Tech is (Mostly) Doing Fine

by Daniel Hom on August 22, 2012

If you follow tech news, you might think we’re in a downward spiral. Zynga reported “weak quarterly results,” Facebook results “rattle Wall Street,” and there’s more talk about new dot com bubbles.

Technology, however, is more than just social-media companies, and most tech IPOs are doing just fine. On average, tech companies since the beginning of last year are up 5%. It’s just those with a social element that are not fairing as well on average; in fact if you remove companies with any social element, the tech average jumps to 25%.

In the past few weeks, there have been sharp declines a few companies (e.g. Groupon and Zynga), but for some other tech companies, we’ve also seem strong gains (e.g. LinkedIn, Zillow). Jive Software, DemandWare, Splunk are all easily outperforming the tech average, and they are in good company. Even social review-aggregator Yelp is up 27% from its offer price, much better than its low of a positive 1% return in early June.

So if you look only at stock prices, many of the recent technology IPOs are doing fine. They’re just not the ones getting the attention.

Now with a large amount of players in the field of health and beauty products manufacturing,
there is immense competition within the market. If
you’re sore after doing exercises and you’ve got plateaued with an extended duration of time,
it means the body isn’t getting what it really needs.

Whilst these may help slimmers to see fast weight losses, the majority them can not be used for more than a week.
When I did that, I felt happy all night and in many cases when I was taking out the left over from
the make up.
