META: Tech-Wreck's Leader Of The Pack

* See UPDATES below...

The following one-year charts and year-to-date percentages gained/lost graph show how much the 10 Technology stocks within the FNGU ETF have dropped during those periods.

META (Facebook) has lost the most, percentage-wise (70.51%), so far this year, followed by:

  • NVDA (52.93%),
  • NFLX (50.91),
  • BIDU (47.21%),
  • BABA (46.34%),
  • AMZN (37.97%),
  • TSLA (35.13%),
  • GOOGL (33.53%),
  • MSFT (29.41%), and 
  • AAPL (11.93%).

FNGU has, itself, lost 87.05% this year.

Further weakness in META could drag these stocks lower...one to watch...along with the VXN:NDX ratio, as described in my post of October 18.

One-year Daily Charts

Year-to-date Percentages Gained/Lost graph

META has been running in circles...and is back in 2016 territory...

P.S. Is AMZN next? Note the parabolic rise...usually followed by a similar plunge.

* UPDATE Oct. 31...

Oh my! 😲

No wonder the Biden administration does NOT want Republicans taking control of the House and Senate in the midterm elections...who will, surely, add this to their growing list of intended investigations!

* UPDATE Nov. 1...

Some interesting statistics...(N.B. TWTR was delisted from the NYSE on November 28, since it was privatized, following its sale to Elon Musk)...

* UPDATE Nov. 4...

Who wouldn't like to a fly on the wall during these upcoming depositions?

Things should get "interesting" as Americans finally get the transparency, to which they are fully entitled.

* UPDATE Nov. 6...

With META reportedly poised to announce thousands of job layoffs sometime this week, it should be a wild week in markets with all eyes on Tuesday's midterm election results...isn't it interesting that they're waiting until after that to announce! 🤔
