Declining sharemarkets always create the opportunity for storeies about the impact on specific sectors.
It raises the better question - how have tech stocks compared to the market (ASX 200).
For IT stocks;
For telco stocks
I'd conclude the sectors have pretty much followed the market - but that telcos are doing just a bit better than the market overall.
In other words - move on folks - nothing to see here!
