for Web sites and wireless devices, reported first-quarter earnings of

higher in after-hours trading.

The employment cost index and GDP data for the first-quarter will be
released on Thursday, which might give investors a clue as to the Fed's

sell off similar to the one caused by the March CPI data released two weeks
