Apple, AMD, Facebook: Tech Premarket

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Apple (AAPL - Get Report) shares, which crested above $700 for the first time in post-market trading on Monday, dipped slightly early on Tuesday.

The tech giant's stock was down 0.2% to $698.39 before market open, just a day after the company announced record pre-orders of the new iPhone 5. On Monday, Apple confirmed that iPhone 5 pre-orders topped 2 million in the first 24 hours that the phone was available, shattering the previous record of more than 1 million pre-orders set by the iPhone 4S.

Apple was also one of the most active premarket Nasdaq stocks on Tuesday on share volume of 166,029.

AMD (AMD - Get Report) shares plunged 8.98% to $3.65 on Tuesday after the company announced the departure of Chief Financial Officer Thomas Seifert.

"Seifert has informed the company of his decision to resign as senior vice president and chief financial officer to pursue other opportunities," explained AMD, in a statement released after market close on Monday. "Seifert's departure is not based on any disagreement over the Company's accounting principles or practices, or financial statement disclosures," it added.

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based firm did not reveal where Seifert is heading.

Facebook (FB - Get Report) shares crept up 0.37% to $21.60 on Tuesday. The social networker was also one of the most active premarket Nasdaq stocks on share volume of 73,638.
