Nvidia’s stock NVDA, +0.97% tumbled $10.27, or 9.3%, to suffer the biggest price decline since it went public in January 1999. The one-day percentage selloff was the stock’s biggest since it dropped 9.5% on Aug. 4, 2011. Volume spiked to 39.5 million shares, which was about 2 1/2-times the full-day average.
