Election

After two consecutive weeks in which most of our 13 Internet sectors gained, upward movement has stalled amid confusion and uncertainty surrounding this week's presidential election, with the Nasdaq falling 5.4% on Wednesday.

The real question is whether 'Net stocks will resume their comeback or begin looking for yet another bottom. Trouble is, we may not know that answer for some time, since legal challenges to Tuesday's vote loom in Florida and elsewhere.

Until we know who the next president will be, expect Internet stocks to be trapped in a lockbox of investor anxiety and doubt.
