The highflying technology stocks that drove much of the U.S. stock market’s advance in 2023 are struggling so far in 2024, with the Nasdaq capping off its longest losing streak since late 2022 on Thursday.

Meanwhile, health-care stocks, utilities and energy stocks, which all finished 2023 in the red, have taken the lead this week, according to FactSet data.
