Take Netflix (NFLX) - Get Report for example. The company reported disappointing earnings on Monday, send the stock sharply lower, along with other tech stocks. This was the subject of TheStreet's Jim Cramer's Real Money column on Tuesday.
A similar situation has occurred with trade worries. When a negative trade tariff headline emerges, the entire industrials sector can be affected.
