Short sellers are smelling blood in the water. Start swimming, Zuckerberg.

Over the last five years, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, and Google, aka the &q;FANG&q; stocks, have led the market higher. They&s;ve outperformed the Nasdaq, up over 122% and the S&a;amp;P 500, up over 70%. Netflix is up 1,129%. It&s;s practically a cryptocurrency play, it&s;s up so much.&a;nbsp; This year, Netflix is up over 40%. Amazon: 21%.&a;nbsp; The rest of the tech market generals are trailing far behind. They are all underperforming the Nasdaq. They&s;re expensive. They&s;re mired in controversy. In terms of headline drama, they&s;re the new Vampire Squid of the investing world.

&q;FANG stocks have been the market leader. If this group continues to trade down, following March&a;rsquo;s unconfirmed high, there will be negative implications for the broader market,&q; says Dan Russo, chief market strategist for Chaikin Analytics, a stock ranking platform based in Chicago.

    Friday was a down day for the stock market, but losses for most major benchmarks were fairly limited. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell just under 80 points, and other popular indexes declined by roughly the same percentage amount. The U.S. economy showed strength, with significant job creation during the month of August, but fears about wage price pressures and new tariff disputes held any enthusiasm in check. Moreover, some much-followed stocks had to deal with setbacks that sent their shares lower. Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), Korn/Ferry International (NYSE:KFY), and Opko Health (NASDAQ:OPK) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
