AAmazon, Alphabet, Apple, Microsoft, Netflix, Meta: Major tech companies are suffering in the stock market right now, some of them have lost market values of $500 billion and more since the beginning of the year. They have sometimes frightened investors with fewer subscribers or a rather gloomy outlook, at the same time the large central banks are now tightening their monetary policy again, even in Europe.
