Tuesday Morning's 5 Tech Stock Movers Include Google and Zoom

Tech stocks got off to a better start Tuesday morning. The Nasdaq was up about 0.3%, while the Dow Jones industrials and the S&P 500 both traded around 0.1% higher. The Nasdaq closed up 3.4% on Monday, as investors and managers rebalanced their portfolios, adding back some relatively inexpensive tech stocks after the recent sell-off.

The ISM manufacturing index for January came in at 57.6% Tuesday morning. The consensus estimate called for the index to come in at 57.5%, down from 58.7%. Any number above 50% indicates that the economy is expanding.

At the opening bell, the three major indexes opened mixed, with the S&P 500 up about 0.1%, the Nasdaq down about 0.2% and the Dow up about 0.2%.

Tech stocks (down 0.4%) were the only sector trading in the red early Tuesday. The industrials and materials sectors were up 1.2% and 1.0%, respectively, shortly after the opening bell.
