Investing.com - Technology stocks led the rally midday, rebounding from weakness in the previous day led by software and chip stocks.
The Nasdaq Composite rose about 1% at 12:00 PM ET (16:00 GMT), while the S&P Information Technology index gained about 1.2%.
Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) climbed about 3%, continuing its post-earnings comeback. Oracle reported numbers on Monday, with revenue coming in shy of expectations, but after the knee-jerk drop, the stock has rallied sharply. Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) shares gained about 1.4%.
Meanwhile, semiconductor stocks were mostly higher ahead of Micron Technology’s earnings report after the bell.
NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) was the notable exception, sinking about 2.5%.
Micron should give investors more clarity on whether memory chips are moving into a downward cycle.
