Investors faced a turbulent end to the week as shares of several high-profile companies nosedived following a series of disappointing earnings reports and forecasts. Diageo (LON:DGE), the UK-based beverage giant, experienced a sharp 13.7% fall in its stock price today amid concerns over slower growth in the first half of the year, particularly due to weaker performance in Latin American markets.

Biotech firm Illumina (NASDAQ:ILMN) wasn't spared from the market's unforgiving response to underwhelming financial updates. The company's stock took a 13.6% hit Today after it revised its full-year adjusted earnings guidance down to 60-70 cents per share, falling short of analysts' expectations of 80 cents.

In the clean energy sector, Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG)'s shares plunged over 34% Today, hitting a new 52-week low. Investors reacted negatively to the company's third-quarter results, which did not meet market expectations.

This wave of market jitters comes on the heels of Thursday's trading session, where Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) also faced significant sell-offs. Groupon's shares plummeted by 39.5% after reporting poor third-quarter results and announcing an $80 million rights offering for shareholders. Meanwhile, Wynn Resorts saw its stock decline by 7.3%, as concerns regarding EBITDAR for its Macao operations overshadowed an otherwise strong performance.

These consecutive blows to investor confidence underscore the challenges companies are facing across various sectors, with market sentiment being heavily influenced by both company-specific news and broader economic headwinds.
