    Tencent's $143 Billion Rout Is World's Biggest as Tech Sinks


    If you thought the slump in U.S. technology stocks was bad, take a look at Tencent Holdings Ltd.

    The Chinese Internet giant has tumbled 25 percent from its January peak, erasing about $143 billion of market value. That’s the biggest wipeout of shareholder wealth worldwide, as measured from the date of each stock’s 52-week high. Facebook Inc., the F in the FANG block of mega-cap U.S. tech shares, is the second-biggest loser with a $136 billion slump over the past three trading sessions.

    It sounds like they'll rebound but its good to see some realism in the stock market.

    They're still a juggernaut and I'm pretty cautious of how much impact they have on video games and some of the recent nasty trends of monetization.

    Yes, and it's cross-platform.
