Shares of Apple Inc.

AAPL, -3.29%

slumped 2.6% in premarket trade Tuesday, extending the previous session’s losses to a 4 1/2-month low and to put them on track to open in bear-market territory. Many on Wall Street define a bear market as a decline of 20% or more from a bull-market high. On that basis, Apple’s stock would be in a bear market with a close at or below $185.65, which is 20% below the Oct. 3 record close of $232.07. On Monday, the stock dipped below that threshold in intraday trade, but pared losses to close down 19.9% from its record close. Apple’s stock hasn’t been in a bear market since it came out of the last one on Aug. 15, 2016. Apple is the only FAANG stock that hasn’t already entered a bear market. Shares of Facebook Inc.

FB, +0.62%

NFLX, -0.84%
