Morning stock check: McAfee up, Maxim Integrated Products down

Far from the slow start on Monday morning, stock prices are rising fast today, led by nearly a 4.5 percent increase by current leader McAfee, Inc. (MFE) and approximately 4 percent jumps from Google Inc. (GOOG) and VMware, Inc. (VMW).

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.

And although their stock price was dipping slightly this morning, Hewlett-Packard shares were <a target="_blank" href="http://”>expected to rise overall and bring some profit to stockholders, according to Bloomberg.com. For the fifth-straight recording period, Hewlett-Packard beat its rival Dell Inc. (DELL) in personal computer sales. And after being accused of stealing program codes by Oracle Corporation (ORCL), TomorrowNow CEO Andrew Nelson <a target="_blank" href="http://”>resigned yesterday, and parent company SAP AG (SAP) has discussed the possibility of selling the unit.
