The US mega-cap tech firms known as the FANG stocks extended their losses yesterday this week, following last Friday’s fall.

FANG is the acronym for four mega-cap technology stocks that have been driving the NASDAQ to new highs this year. Prior to the hiccup last week, the tech-heavy NASDAQ climbed to a new record closing high, to 6,322 on June 8. The index is now down 2.3% from that level.

Shares of FANG stocks Alphabet (GOOG), Facebook (FB) and Amazon (AMZN) are all down more than 4%, from their previous high levels on June 8. Other tech stocks are also affected; Microsoft (MSFT) has also fallen 3%, while Apple (AAPL) is down 6.2% over the same period. They are all rated three-star by Morningstar analysts, meaning analysts believe these stocks are trading at their estimated fair value.
