3 Momentum Stocks That Have Been Absolutely Trounced Since March: StockTwits

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- In this post we're looking at 3 of the biggest momentum names in the market. Each of them has fallen more than 25% since the start of March, and they have all been top-trending tickers on StockTwits throughout this entire week.

1.) FireEye (FEYE) is a virtual security company for enterprise businesses and governments. Before March, its stock was one of the biggest momentum names in the market -- up roughly 130% since its September 2013 IPO. However, the S&P 500 is barely up 2% this year, and momentum stocks are having an increasingly difficult time rising.

On StockTwits, bearish sentiment about FireEye jumped 27% today. Over the last seven days, there have been well over 500 messages posted on StockTwits about FireEye.

Would you buy this dip or do you think it's going lower? Let's ask the cashtaggers.

2.) Yelp (YELP) has been trounced this week. It's already down more than 10% and is approaching its lowest levels of the year. That drop is partly owed to the FTC. They recently said that they've received over 2,000 complaints about Yelp since 2008.

On StockTwits, bearish messages about Yelp from traders and investors spiked 25%. Technical charts like this are being shared by the hour:
