(USA TODAY) As the markets get ready to reopen on this short week, let's take a look at the tech stocks to watch Tuesday morning.
Google tops $800. For the first time ever, shares in the tech behemoth crossed the $800 mark. It's currently up 1.15% to $802.08.
Since hitting a 12-month low of $559.05 in June, the stock has surged in value, topping $700 in early September. In October, Google shares reached $768 before falling through mid-November, where it has since resumed its march upward. As the Associated Press reports, Google's ascent represents a show of faith in co-founder Larry Page, who took over as CEO nearly two years ago.
Dell to report earnings. After the bell, personal computer maker Dell will share fourth-quarter earnings. In the third quarter, Dell posted an 11% dip in revenue compared to the same time last year, as well as a 31% plunge in net income.
Since then, an investment group led by founder and CEO Michael Dell announced a $24.4 billion deal to buy out the troubled company and take them private.
Dell's largest outside investor, Southeastern Asset Management, is against the buyout, along with mutual fund firm T. Rowe Price. Shares of Dell are down slightly at $13.79 in pre-market trading.
The march to $200. Netflix stock hovers around $191 as shares in the media giant continue to inch closer to the $200 mark.
The past six months have been remarkable for Netflix and its stock, which posted a six-month low of $53.80 in late September. Since then, the stock has more than tripled in value. Netflix's massive surge started in late January, after an impressive fourth-quarter earnings report and continued growth in the company's streaming media service.
