Here are the biggest stock-market losers on Thursday as the tech sector tanks


An epic run for technology stocks ended Thursday, as they led a broad decline for the U.S. market. Lists of the day’s worst performing stocks in benchmark indexes are below.

• The Dow Jones Industrial Average
US:DJIA
was down 808 points, or 2.8%, for the session, and is down 0.9% for the year so far. (All price changes in this article exclude dividends.)

• The S&P 500 Index
US:SPX
fell 3.5% but is still up 6.9% on the year.

• The Nasdaq Composite Index
US:COMP
took a 5% dive, slicing into its 27.7% year-to-date gain. David Bahnsen, chief investment officer of the Bahnsen Group in Newport Beach, Calif., wrote in an email that a pullback in technology stocks was appropriate, as “the Nasdaq has advanced violently since March and many names are at absurd valuations.”

MarketWatch reporter William Watts explained why the stock market’s high valuations weren’t limited to the dominant technology companies.
