Deep Dive: These 10 stocks in the S&P 500 lost $4.2 trillion of investors’ money during the first half of 2022

The first half of 2022 is over, and good riddance for investors: The S&P 500 Index has declined 20.6%.

Below are two lists of the worst-performing stocks in the S&P 500
SPX,
-0.88%

this year.

First, here are the 10 companies whose market capitalizations have dropped the most during 2022, through the close on June 30. The 2021 figures are for all of that year.

They aren’t necessarily the worst performers in the benchmark index on a percentage basis, but the companies are so large that their market values have plunged the most — hopefully only paper losses for investors who were patient enough to hold on in a plunging market:
