The 10 Biggest Stock Market Failures of 2017

The year isn't over yet, but with just a little more than a month left before 2017 is in the rear-view mirror, where individual stocks are right now is more or less where they're going to be. While most names have ridden the bullish wave of the S&P 500's year-to-date gain of 16%, in some cases there's painfully bad news—a handful of names are shockingly deep in the red.

As one may suspect, there's a story behind each of these monster-sized setbacks worth telling; most of these stories underscore the danger of unrealistic expectations—namely unmet, unrealistic expectations rooted more in hope than plausibility.

With that as the backdrop, here's a run-down of this year's biggest and most notable market failures of 2017. While the numbers may change between now and the end of December, it's unlikely any of those stock flops will perform their way off of this list by the end of next month.
