Technology stocks were hit by a wave of pessimism last week as industry giants simply underperformed; Apple didn't meet its estimates, Microsoft faded slightly and IBM saw a drop in new contracts.

Bleak trading activity this week also reflected the overall poor performance of the technology sector. The rise of put options this week on technology stocks appears to have confirmed speculation that investors are losing confidence in the sector as a whole. Put options ballooned to a little over 7 times the four-week average. In recent sessions alone there were almost 200,000 puts to sell the SPDR exchange-traded fund, a major technology sector fund. The puts to sell beat the number of calls to buy by over 80 times.

Trade activity and an overall dismal performance by the technology sector this week have significantly dented investors' confidence.
