The stock market just finished a difficult week. The S&P 500 index fell 2.2%, Dow Jones Industrials lost 2.8%, and the tech-heavy NASDAQ Composite market barometer dropped 2.3% lower.
But some tech stocks bucked the negative trend in a big way. Driven by a trio of fantastic earnings reports, Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) gained 9.7% from one weekend to the next, while Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG) surged 11.5% higher (sorry -- pun intended!) and SanDisk (NASDAQ:SNDK) jumped 11.6%.
