With uncertainty over the fate of the Greek economy, the US stock market took a steep dive today, and the big tech companies were not immune.
Like other market indexes, the tech-heavy NASDAQ composite plummeted, and while it has partially recovered, it was still down 3.4 percent (82.65 points) at market close.
The Dow also saw its biggest single-day plunge since 1987 today, although it’s since recovered some of that loss.
And here’s how far a number of prominent tech stocks have fallen:
- Amazon — down 1.7 percent
- Apple — down 3.8 percent
- Google — down 2.2 percent
- IBM — down 2.3 percent
- Microsoft — down 2.9 percent
- Oracle — down 4.1 percent
- HP — down 5.1 percent
- Yahoo — down 3.5 percent
Meanwhile, people trying to track the market’s shifts online are probably having a hard time keeping up. Yahoo Finance is down, TechCrunch also spotted error messages on Google Finance.
