Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) – InvestorPlace‘s Stock of the Week — is one of many tech companies reporting earnings this week, with the report slated for tomorrow after the bell. The search giant got a slight boost yesterday on news of higher shipment targets for its Nexus 7 tablets as well.
Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) released its quarterly numbers after the bell yesterday. The company – headed by Google alum Marissa Mayer — beat EPS expectations by a hefty 13 cents, but the stock still slipped after-hours.
Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) also reported yesterday and missed expectations by one penny. INTC is a contender in this year’s Best Stocks of 2013 contest and was chosen by InvestorPlace editor Jeff Reeves. It’s currently sitting in fifth place with 6% year-to-date gains, but Reeves still believes in its prospects.
Two Harbors (NYSE:TWO) is another contender in the contest and was the early leader. It recently slipped to second place, though, and remains there despite yesterday’s 3% gain. Still, that’s not too shabby considering it the reader submission into the contest.
Adobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE) announced a new video streaming system last week called Adobe Primetime. News of the product, which aims to make it easier for companies to deliver streaming video content, caused the stock to jump as high as 2.5% the following day. ADBE has gained 20% year-to-date.
