Worst Performers the Last Month

By @ibtimes on

With the market peaking just under a month ago, it is always interesting to see which stocks have fared the worst. If you are not a trend follower type of investor, and have a longer term time frame sometimes you can pick up some bargains.  Further, if you see groups of stocks from the same sector you can figure out specific rotations HAL9000's algo's have been telling it to perform.

Here is a list of 42 stocks that have lost at least a fifth of their value in the past month (market cap at least $300M).  A cursory glance shows a lot of tech stocks, which would make sense considering the NASDAQ's under performance of late.
