U.S. tech blue chips firm in Europe, futures rise
LONDON, April 14 (Reuters) - Big-name U.S. technology stocks saw nibbles from investors during morning
trade in Europe, prompting dealer talk of bottom-fishing across the pond in New York as index futures
Better-than-expected results overnight from Sun Microsystems Inc. (NasdaqNM:SUNW - news), the leading
maker of powerful computer servers used to run websites, boosted the company's shares to $79-1/2 versus
its official Thursday close at $77-3/4.
First-quarter numbers from Gateway Inc. (NYSE:GTW - news), the number two U.S. direct seller of
personal computers, arrived in line with Wall Street expectations, leaving its shares untraded in Europe but
reassuring dealers in a market bruised by week-long turbulence.
``It's quite encouraging. As long as the earnings keep coming in with this kind of pattern, we have had more upside surprises than negative ones,
we have a reasonable chance of finding a bottom to the market,'' said one London dealer.
June S&P futures were trading at nearly 1,461 points by 1011 GMT, more than seven points up on fair value to indicate a modest bounce to the
Dow Jones industrial index at the off versus Thursday's 1.81 percent drop.
Nasdaq futures were some 20 points higher in contrast to Thursday's 92.85 points fall to 3,676.78, a close marking a 770 points loss this week
and a 25 percent drop in index value since its March high.
``We have seen some bottom-fishing among the main technology stocks this morning,'' said another London dealer.
That saw firmness in software writer Oracle Corp (NasdaqNM:ORCL - news), which rose to $72-1/2 from Thursday's $71-15/16 close, and
America Online Inc (NYSE:AOL - news), up $3/8 from $58-5/8.
