SunPower tops Bay Area stocks

Solar-equipment manufacturer SunPower Corp. (SPWR) ended the day with its share price up 6.48 percent, the largest increase of any of the 50 Bay Area public companies tracked by The Examiner, following a series of announcements in the past week.

The market closed the day up, with the Dow up .33 percent, the Nasdaq up 1.06 percent and the S&P 500 up .38 percent. The Nasdaq’s upswing was likely driven by investors banking on good returns from Apple Inc. (AAPL), which is due to release quarterly results, according to Reuters.

Other big local share-price earners included Intuitive Surgical Inc. (ISRG) and VMware Inc. (VMW). On the flip side, Agilent Technologies Inc. (A) saw the greatest drop in share price among The Examiner’s 50, at a decline of 1.88 percent at close.

Intel Corp. (INTC) had the greatest volume of shares traded today among Bay Area firms, at 62.39 million shares traded.
