9 Of The Worst Performing Tech Stocks In 2015

Who said making money in the stock market is easy? In a year the market was essentially flat, a few tech stocks had a really tough time staying afloat. Companies like Twitter, Groupon, and Yahoo all suffered at the hands of the public markets.

Click through to read about nine of the worst performing public technology companies of 2015. And, check out part one which highlighted some of the best performing tech companies of the year.

1/9

Twitter (NYSE: TWTR)

Poor Twitter. While the company recently brought back in Jack Dorsey to try to turn things around, it doesn’t seem to have helped much. The stock is trading around $22 dollars, giving the company a market cap of just $15 billion, down 37 percent this year.

2/9

Overstock (NASDAQ: OSTK)

Overstock, everyone’s favorite Bitcoin-friendly retail site, also hasn’t had the best year. The stock is trading at about $12.50 with a market cap of $311M, down 49 percent on the year.

3/9

Rackspace (NYSE: RAX)

Despite better-than-expected Q3 results, Rackspace has continued its decline, now down more than 45 percent on the year. The stock closed yesterday at $25.11, which is less than half of its 52-week high of $56.20.

4/9

Box (NYSE: BOX)

Cloud storage company Box has fallen 38 percent since its IPO this year, now trading at around $14.30 per share, giving it a market cap of $1.47 billion. However, the company just boosted its 2015 guidance, so maybe things aren’t so bad after all.

5/9

Yahoo (NASDAQ: YHOO)

Yahoo has had an especially tough year, down about 33 percent year-to-date. Three years into Marissa Mayer’s reign, the company just hasn’t really made the turnaround that shareholders were promised. The company also just said it’s not going to spin off its lucrative Alibaba stake, which has only caused increased pressure from shareholders.

6/9

Etsy (NASDAQ: ETSY)

Trading around $8.73 per share, Etsy is down almost 71 percent this year from its post-IPO highs.

7/9

Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN)

Poor Groupon. The former ecommerce darling is now trading at just $3.15 per share, down 61 percent this year and just a fraction of its all time high of $26 per share. However, the company has recently made a series of management changes and layoffs, which hopefully will bring the company back to its former glory.

8/9

Yelp (NYSE: YELP)

Down 47 percent on the year, online review service Yelp is in a bit of a slump. The company is now just worth just $2B, a fraction of its all-time high. That being said, the company has had a few earnings beats recently, and looks to be turning things around.

9/9

GrubHub (NYSE: GRUB)

Food delivery site GrubHub didn’t have the best year, now trading down 32 percent at $24.58 per share.
