Tech Stocks: The Nasdaq Rises Another 1%

The scuttlebutt is of first-quarter earnings reports that will produce many smiles.
No one wants to jinx it, but today's strong market performance has some hoping the recent correction is over. And the scuttlebutt is of first-quarter earnings reports that will produce many smiles.

It was a steady climb for the day's winner, the Nasdaq, which closed at its high Monday. At the bell, it had risen 1.1%, or 21.95 points, to 2,079.12. The shallowest gain came from our own InformationWeek 100. It rose .6%, or 1.89, to 328.7. The Dow rose .84%, or 87.78, to 10,558.37; and the S&P 500 rose .77%, or 8.76, to rest at 1,150.57.

The Nasdaq-100 tracking stock rose .9%, or 35 cents, to $37.45 on moderate volume of 67 million shares.
