  • Apple slides below $400

    Apple. That bright and shiny tech darling continues to taste a little sour.

    Shares of Apple (AAPL) fell below $400 for the first time since mid-April early Monday. The stock has struggled to stay above that mark all year and with some good reason.

  • HP rallies 14%, trouncing broader sell-off

    As markets around the globe remain steeped in red, one stock is bucking the trend: Hewlett-Packard (HPQ).

    HP is riding the wave of Meg Whitman's turnaround plan. The CEO said she's "encouraged" by the results so far, but cautioned it will take some time.
