SVB Financial stock slides 42% amid fears of a run on the troubled bank


SVB Financial Group SIVB, -60.41%, the parent of Silicon Valley Bank, saw its stock tumble more than 42% in premarket trade Friday, in a continued response to reports late Thursday that several funds were advising clients to pull their money,. sparking fears of a run on the bank. Bloomberg News late Thursday reported that Founders Fund, the San Francisco-based venture-capital fund co-founded by Peter Thiel, has advised companies to do just so. The report cited people familiar with the matter. It came after SVB Financial ended down 60% in the regular trading day after disclosing large losses from securities sales and announcing a dilutive stock offering along with a profit warning. The bank was unprepared for rising interest rates which have hit its net interest income and net interest margin. The news created carnage in the banking sector on Thursday, and sparked fears that other banks are in a similar position.
