Red Menace Continues To Plague 'Net Tickers

NOTE: Friday's StockTracker Daily column now features internet.com's free e-mail newsletter, Internet StockTracker, which covers the weekly performances of nearly 400 Internet stocks across 13 sectors. If you would like this newsletter delivered to your e-mail each Friday, you can sign up here.

Aug. 4, 2000 - Last week only one Internet sector posted a (razor-thin) gain. The rest lost ground, with one group turning in double-digit losses.

This week there are no sectors in the black, while eight of 13 plunged more than 10%. That's because investors continue to see too much red in the quarterly reports bombarding Wall Street this earnings season.

The flow of Q2's soon will dwindle to a trickle, but the bad aftertaste could linger through Labor Day. Next week won't be as bad - we might even see a couple of sectors gain - but don't count on anything resembling a sustained rally. In this summer of uncertainty and gloom, the market just isn't ready.
