Signature Bank Stock Down 12% in Volatile Action as Bank Selloff Continues

Most notably, SVB Financial Group (SIVB), the holding company of Silicon Valley Bank, is down more than 40% on Friday and now off just shy of 80% for the week. The tech-friendly lender earlier this week announced a loss of around $1.8 billion on a securities portfolio valued at $21 billion, prompting a share sale to shore up its capital.
