Nam Tai Electronics
sank Thursday as tech investors continued to mull over a week of carnage in the sector.
The Vancouver, B.C., telecom and electronics manufacturer saw its shares slip 7% even after the company posted a record sales month in June. Nam Tai also boosted second-quarter sales guidance, citing strong sales of Bluetooth cell phone headsets, among other things.

Wall Street analysts surveyed by Thomson First Call expect the company to earn 28 cents a share on sales of $133 million for the second quarter.
