The morning after Donald Trump's stunning presidential victory sent stock futures plummeting, major tech stocks appear to be dropping on Wall Street during an otherwise surprisingly steady opening of post-election trade.

The major names in the red this morning include Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, eBay, Facebook, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Netflix and others.

It isn't an across-the-board drop, though.

The biggest name bucking the trend is one that played a central role in this year's election: Twitter. Its stock is up over four percentage points and climbing as of this publication.
