Momentum Shifts Downward for Older Technology Stocks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- All nine of the tech stocks that I profiled in June had year-to-date gains of 10% to 40% at that time, but since then, momentum has shifted to declining for six of the stocks, as shown in the first "crunching the numbers" table.

The last company of the nine to report quarterly results is Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) , which will report after the closing bell on Wednesday. Analysts expect the company to post earnings of 89 cents per share as its turnaround continues.
