Internet advertising company Overture Services Inc. (OVER.O), which reported a sharp increase in earnings and sales, and announced a three-year extension of a key partnership with Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO.O), helped out the market with a gain of $8.42, or 32 percent to $34.05.
But computer security and Web address provider VeriSign Inc. slumped sharply after it reported a narrower net loss but missed revenue projections and said it would lay off 10 percent if its work force. The stock was further punished by a number of rating downgrades from major Wall Street brokerages, including Credit Suisse First Boston and J.P. Morgan.
It tumbled $7.94, or 43 percent to $10.30, ranking as the Nasdaq's most actively traded share and one of its biggest percentage losers.
