    By Bob Ciura - July 11, 2013 | Tickers: CSC, MCHP, MOLX

  • Buy This Hidden Gem

    By Chris Lau - May 31, 2013 | Tickers: CSC, HPQ, XRX

    When Computer Sciences (NYSE: CSC) reported quarterly earnings, the company beat consensus estimates by $0.29 per share, earning $1.27 per share. Instead of bidding shares higher, investors took profits. One reason is that Computer Sciences touched a 52-week high of around $50 on several occasions. By the middle of May, when shares were bid to the $50 level, it sold off.

  • 3 Tech Stocks With Bullish Trends

    By Derrik Lattig - April 30, 2013 | Tickers: ATVI, CSC

    When considering stocks, it's always helpful to gauge what the rest of the market thinks. One source of sentiment is the number of shares shorted. Companies seeing significant increases in shares shorted are being viewed more negatively, and vice-versa.

    I ran a screen on the technology sector for stocks seeing the most significant decreases in shares shorted month-over-month, as this indicates that short sellers are becoming less bearish on more »
