The stock then bounced 9.9% on Wednesday and 3.7% on Thursday before falling again on Friday. In all, the stock has dropped 20.0% this week. The next biggest weekly percentage decline was 15.8% for the week ended Dec. 6, 2019. In comparison, the Nasdaq Composite has slipped 0.9% this week while the S&P 500 has gained 1.9%.
