Alibaba, U.S.-Listed Chinese Companies Drop Most Since March

(Bloomberg) -- U.S.-listed Chinese companies declined 3.4 percent Monday for their biggest collective loss since March. The fall comes after reports that the White House plans to curb Chinese investments in U.S. companies involved in certain technologies amid trade tensions between the two countries.

The S&P 500, Nasdaq and Dow Jones Industrial Average each closed down at least 1.3 percent Monday as indexes across the world declined.

Major Chinese technology stocks fell, led by Chinese streaming company iQIYI Inc. The company slid 9.4 percent to mark a third straight day of losses.

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. also closed down for a third day, falling 5.3 percent, the most since March. Baidu Inc. and JD.com Inc. dropped 3.3 percent and 4.0 percent respectively.
