5 Top Stock Decliners for Wednesday

U.S. consumer price inflation pushed down most major stock indices, taking share prices with them.

All three stock indices were trailing Wednesday after U.S. consumer price inflation accelerated to the fastest pace in three decades and spooked investors.

Here are some of the companies that took a hit on Wednesday.

1. Poshmark POSH | Down 29%

Shares of Poshmark  (POSH) - Get Poshmark, Inc. Class A Report stumbled after the online marketplace reported third-quarter earnings and guidance that missed Wall Street expectations.

Poshmark also warned that the recent privacy changes from Apple  (AAPL) - Get Apple Inc. Report would trigger higher marketing spending.

"For the remainder of the year, we expect marketing as a percentage of revenues to be in the high 40s due to higher cost in digital advertising as a result of Apple privacy changes," interim Chief Financial Officer Kapil Agrawal told investors.
