The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite indices were up 1.4% each last week. But if the market for tech stocks was rallying, nobody told Castlight Health (NYSE:CSLT), Oracle (NYSE:ORCL), or China Mobile Games & Entertainment Group (UNKNOWN:CMGE.DL).

The following slideshow digs deeper into these three terrible tech stories. Are we looking at three disasters in the making, or could there be deep-value gold hidden in some of these sudden discount prices?
