Big Cap Tech Apparently Unfazed by Sovereign Debt Fears

Maybe they’re still basking in the afterglow of this week’s great Cisco ($CSCO) report.  Or maybe the new IT Upgrade Cycle as Cost-Cutting theme is the real deal.  For whatever reason, techs have held up extremely well during this week’s market tumult.

Here’s a look at the top up stocks on the Nazz by volume right now (12:15) …this is happening with the Dow firmly under 10k and materials still behind the woodshed.

Nice to see a little bit of decoupling this afternoon.  Not all stocks should be hit equally each time the market gets the jitters.  Have a great weekend, guys.
