Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (MXIM) is seeing a slight drop in value, down just under 1.5 percent on early trading, joining Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) and Intuit Inc. (INTU), who had drops of just more than 1 percent each.

Continuing their high-volume trades this week, Intel Corporation (INTC) and Apple Inc. (AAPL) were again at the top of the volume charts, moving 12.11 million and 10.47 million units respectively. Other Silicon Valley stalwarts Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) and the Hewlett-Packard Company (HPQ) also moved more than 10 million units apiece.
