Dancing with the Stocks

Tuesday, 14 Dec 2010 | 5:35 PM ET

Like dancing with the stars? Not the TV show (though that’s our guilty pleasure); we mean the tech stars!

We’re talking hot stocks from Netflix to Akamai – the Wall Street tech stars.

Big Tech Bucks Tape
Highlighting the three tech supernovas of 2010, with Mark Mahaney, analyst at Citigroup.

With Akamai up 95% year to date and Netflix up over 200% year to date, they’re performed quite well – they even deserve the 10 paddle.

But it’s nearly the end of the season and time for the final elimination.

Which stock takes home the mirror ball trophy? Sorry Bruno, Len and Carrie Ann our judge is top tech analyst Mark Mahaney!

What’s his favorite? Watch the video and find out now!
