Handspring ( HAND) was down 6.9% to $1.88, and Research in Motion ( RIMM) was off 5.5% to $13.85. Cray ( CRAY) was the volume leader, trading up 1.3% to $3.98. The Nasdaq 100 Unit Trust ( QQQ) was also active, tacking on 0.2% to $30.60. Overall, volume was again on the light side. In the first two hours of extra trading, around 2 million shares changed hands among the 20 most active stocks on the Instinet platform. Elsewhere among the most actives, Ericsson ( ERICY) was up 0.7%. Microsoft ( MSFT) was inching up 0.1%, and Intel ( INTC) was gaining 0.5%. Cisco ( CSCO) and Oracle ( ORCL) were each adding 0.2%.
