Monthly Gains To Warm The Heart

Internet stocks have performed well in recent weeks, bolstered by some strong earnings reports last month, a number of torrid IPO debuts and anticipation over the coming holiday spending season.

But you may be surprised at how well many Internet stocks have done. I pulled some data from a spreadsheet based on internet.com's Internet Stock List and came up with some amazing numbers.

Through Wednesday's close, 16 Internet stocks have more than doubled in price over the past month, and two of those are up by more than 200 percent.

Further, another 37 companies have seen their stocks rise between 50 percent and 100 percent.

All told, 195 Internet stocks -- or 71 percent of those on the Internet Stocks List -- have risen in the past month, while only 81 have lost value.

Firewall vendor Network-1 Security is at the top of the list because, quite frankly, it had the most room to move up. NSSI was trading at 1 = per share on Oct. 13 before beginning its rocket-like ascension to 5 21/32 on Wednesday. (The company now brandishes a muscular $24.7 million market capitalization.)

While several big gainers are riding hot sectors such as e-commerce (PurchasePro.com and Commerce One) or infrastructure (Digital Island and InterNAP Network Services), the list includes companies from virtually every Internet sector.

It can't continue, obviously, and the run-up is making many of these companies, such as PurchasePro.com, highly overvalued. Still, it is fun while it lasts.
