Nationally, among the biggest losers as of Monday was Seattle-based radio technology and software maker Impinj Inc. (PI), which saw its stock price plummet 45 percent to $11.94 between Jan. 29 and Feb. 5. The slide follows a stretch that saw U.S. stocks hit historic highs amid investor excitement over strong corporate earnings reports, a growing economy and the passage of a business-friendly tax bill. Last month, the stalwart Dow Jones Industrial Average took just seven days to add 1,000 points and surpass 26,000 for the first time in its history. Gina Martin Adams, chief equity strategist for Bloomberg Intelligence, said investors were overly optimistic in 2017 amid a steady stream of strong corporate earnings reports.
