The Nasdaq Composite is facing a perplexing predicament, poised for a 0.6% loss this week – its worst weekly performance since March. The tech-heavy index’s troubles have been anything but boring, with a veritable who’s who of tech titans tumbling amid the turbulence.

The pain isn’t limited to the usual suspects, either. Lululemon Athletica, the athleisure darling, has lost around 8% this week, while Sirius XM Holdings and Charter Communications have been similarly battered.
