Apple (AAPL) continued to show why market bulls should not ignore tech stocks. The iPhone giant showed only weak stock dividends today, but an almost 0.4% gain gives the Nasdaq giant more cushion over a new 197.79 point of purchase. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell slightly, by 0.2%.

Qualcomm arranged a breakaway gap with a 12% vault higher on Wednesday, and could easily clear a 76.60 purchase point in a large and deep cup base. The share is still barely at a purchase distance from an alternative 78.82 place of purchase, the opening price in Wednesday's bullish day.
