Five Star Equities Provides Stock Research on EMC and JDS Uniphase

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 9, 2012) - Both the Dow Jones and S&P 500 fell roughly 1 percent Friday after the Labor Department's report showed job growth in the U.S. fell short of analysts' expectations. Additionally shares of major tech companies in the S&P 500 fell sharply after software company, Informatica, lowered its second quarter earnings due to a poor European outlook. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Technology Sector and provides equity research on EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) and JDS Uniphase Corporation (NASDAQ: JDSU).

"I am disappointed that we fell well short of our own expectations in the second quarter of 2012," Informatica's Chief Executive Sohaib Abbasi said in a statement. "Clearly, we did not adapt as rapidly as we should have to the changing macroeconomic environment, especially in Europe." The company's poor European outlook and subsequent drop in share price triggered a domino effect amongst other tech companies who are seen as vulnerable to an economic slowdown in Europe.

Technology was the worst performing sector out of the 10 in the S&P 500 Index as Autodesk, Citrix Systems, EMC, F5 Networks, JDS Uniphase, Red Hat, and Teradata all saw shares fall 5 percent or more.
