Midday stock check: Intuitive Surgical on top

Continuing its positive moves over the past few days, robotic surgical equipment maker Intuitive Surgical Inc. (ISRG) saw its stock price rise 4.90 percent in Monday mid-afternoon trading Eastern Standard Time. It was the greatest share price increase of any of the 50 publicly traded Bay Area stocks tracked by The Examiner.

NVidia Corp. (NVDA) was in second place, with a 4.04 percent share price increase.

At the low end, Sunnyvale analog-circuit firm Maxim Integrated Products Inc. (MXIM) was down 2.19 percent. San Ramon oil giant Chevron Corp. (CVX) was also down 2.02 percent.

Intel Corp. (INTC) had the highest volume of exchanges, with some 41.46 million shares changing hands.

The markets were up overall, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average up .34 percent, the Nasdaq up .91 percent and the S&P 500 up .25 percent.

In the news, journalists are wondering whether federal regulators “appear to be resisting a formal probe of alleged anticompetitive practices of semiconductor giant Intel (INTC) Corp.,” according to CNNMoney.com.
