Also, it's not simply Vanguard. Capital Group, home of American Funds, is the top proprietor of one of the most astounding huge cap collapses in the S&P 500: Netflix (NFLX). Portions of the video decoration lost in excess of 33% of their worth from Jan. 3. That cleared out $88.5 billion in market esteem.
