We added another company to the Disruptive Technology Portfolio this week, following the IPO of Taleo Corp., which develops on-demand talent-management software.

It was a tough week for technology, and the Disruptive Technology Portfolio Index declined nearly 4%, compared with the S&P 500, which inched up 1.6%. Several stocks were down more than 5%, with one declining more than 10%. Wind River fell 11% for the week as its earnings outlook came up short of expectations. Shares of on-demand CRM providers Salesforce.com and RightNow Technologies declined 9% and 7.5%, respectively. Semiconductor companies Broadcom and Marvell also took hits, down 8% each. No stocks made significant gains for the week.
