Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) shares plunged the most in four years
Twitter shares plunged the most in four years after the firm said in July that monthly users had dropped by 1 million in the second quarter and predicted further declines as it fights against spam, fake accounts and malicious rhetoric.
Twitter Inc. just seized a title no company wants: the worst performer in the S&P 500 Index. Shares of the social-media giant dropped about 35 percent in third-quarter trading, which ended Friday — worse than every other company in the index. Twitter’s tough quarter was set off by a disappointing earnings report.
The stock plunged the most in four years after the firm said in July that monthly users had dropped by 1 million in the second quarter and predicted further declines as it fights against spam, fake accounts and malicious rhetoric. Shares sunk further earlier this month after an analyst at MoffettNathanson flagged “ smoke and mirrors” in the company’s expense reporting.
The worst quarterly performers in the S&P 500 after Twitter are IPG Photonics Corp. with a 29 percent drop and Western Digital Corp. with a 24 percent decline.
