The stock market kept performing well on Monday, and the Dow Jones Industrials posted its 12th straight all-time record high. Market sentiment was sunny following the release of Warren Buffett’s annual shareholder letter over the weekend, and the Oracle of Omaha made positive comments about the sustainability of the current bull market, which was able to overcome early declines in the major market benchmarks. However, some stocks didn’t fare as well as the overall market, and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), AmTrust Financial Services (NASDAQ:AFSI), and Horizon Pharma (NASDAQ:HZNP) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.
Tesla gets a poor review
Shares of Tesla fell 4% after the electric car manufacturer received a downgrade from analysts at Goldman Sachs. The Wall Street giant cut its rating on Tesla from neutral to sell, citing concerns about the company’s ability to launch its Model 3 mass-market sedan, execute on the strategy behind its acquisition of solar specialist SolarCity, and deal with the need to tap the capital markets to raise cash. Yet even the bearish analysts admit that Tesla has a competitive advantage over rival automakers with respect to the technology and architecture of its electric vehicles, and Tesla’s efforts to boost battery production appear to be working. Nevertheless, the question facing investors is whether Tesla can execute well on the huge opportunity it has in front of it, and at least in Goldman’s eyes, that could prove more difficult than initially thought.

The stock market lost ground on Monday, sending major market benchmarks lower by more than half a percentage point. The Dow lost its grip on the 20,000 mark in the wake of concerns about economic growth and new U.S. immigration policy, and some believe that the broader geopolitical climate could have a negative impact on global commerce that in turn could start affecting multinational corporations’ business prospects. In addition, bad news from some individual companies weighed on the markets, and Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD), and New Gold (NYSEMKT:NGD) were among the worst performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so poorly.
