  • The 5 biggest losers in the S&P 500 have erased $720 billion in market value so far this year.  

2022 has been a brutal year for investors as war, inflation, and outsized interest rate hikes have led to volatile markets and big losses in widely held blue chip stocks.

The S&P 500 is down 17% year-to-date, with about 70% of companies in the index printing losses. And those losses are big!

Tesla alone has erased $553 billion in market value year-to-date, with the stock down just over 50%. Meanwhile, the combined year-to-date market value losses of mega-cap tech giants Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, and Microsoft have erased nearly $3 trillion in market value.

21 S&P 500 companies have lost at least 50% year-to-date, and the five biggest losers on a percentage basis are down more than 65%.

These are the five S&P 500 companies that have seen the biggest stock price declines so far in 2022, erasing a combined market value of $720 billion, according to data from Koyfin.
