Investors may be inspired by what Google is expected to roll out at the event. The lineup includes updates to its Android, Chrome, Search, and Map platforms, as well as possible new apps, smartphones, and tablets. More will be revealed on the future of Google Glass, and it's anticipated that Google will debut its streaming music service.

Next up will be Apple, which is hosting a developer conference in San Francisco on June 10. It's unclear whether Apple will experience an upward swing in its stock price as the event approaches. The rumor mill is busy with hints of an Apple TV, iPhone 5S, iOS 7, and even an iWatch. In early trading Wednesday, Apple's stock was down about 2.4 percent, to $433.
