These 20 S&P stocks slipped as much as 21.5% in another brutal week for the market

By Philippe van Doorn

Worst performers are oil producers and Ford

Another tough week for US equities ended with oil producer stocks falling and Ford Motor Co. falling on concerns about supply shortages.

The S&P 500 fell 1.7% on Friday for a 4.6% drop over the week as investors continued to worry about interest rate hikes from the Federal Reserve to temper inflation.

Among the constituents of the benchmark, all but 17 posted declines for the week. West Texas Intermediate crude oil for November delivery fell nearly 6% to settle at $78.74 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, down 7.1% on a week.

“The macro environment is really bad” for oil prices, according to Gabelli analyst Simon Wong. During an interview, Wong said that the strong dollar makes oil, which is priced in dollars, more expensive for other countries and hurts demand for crude oil. The energy sector had the worst performance of the bad week, as you can see below.

Eight of the 20 S&P 500 stocks that fell the most during the week belonged to the energy sector:
