List: No-one has escaped the volatility in the markets but how have Apple, Alphabet and ebay done compared with IBM, Intel and others in this tough start to 2016

By Sam

The markets are volatile. Tech investors are nervous.

What started with worries about China in the first week of January and then morphed into an oil price slump story is hitting tech sector shares.

We looked at a mixed bag of new tech and more traditional tech stocks and those changing from one to the other and how they performed between Dec 30th 2015 to Friday 22nd January 2016.

1) Apple – has had a bumpy month. It dropped, then rallied then dropped. It dropped from $108.7 on Dec30th to $101.4 on Jan22. During the month Apple dropped below $100 having hit $96.4 and $96.3 on Jan 7th and Jan21st respectively.
