What goes up. Usually comes down. And in this case. Hard.

Used-car retailer Carvana has taken a beating on Wall Street recently, including Monday when trading was halted due to a turbocharged number of shares trading hands.

By midday Monday, Carvana was trading around $7.50 per share—up from its morning low of around $7.10, but far from its Aug. 15, 2021, peak of more than $376. CNBC pointed out that shares were down by nearly 25 percent Monday morning, which prompted the trading timeout. Since last year, Carvana has had a bumpy ride: regulators have revoked licenses to operate in states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania due to delayed registrations, execs have reported lower-than-expected revenue, and a cooling economy has all influenced the slumping stock.

Whoopi Goldberg claims she's quitting Twitter over Elon Musk: 'I'm out'
Goldberg calls Twitter 'a mess' since Musk took over the social media giant


"The View" host Whoopi Goldberg announced Monday that she plans to quit Twitter after billionaire Elon Musk's takeover but said she might come back if she feels "comfortable."

"So it has been a little over a week since Elon Musk took over Twitter and the place, it’s a mess… He also suspended Kathy Griffin for impersonating him on a parody account, which has started a FreeKathy hashtag to trend. I’m — I’m getting off. I’m getting off today because I just feel like, you know, it’s so messy," Goldberg said.

Goldberg said she was tired of "attitudes" that have been blocked and are now back on the site.
