Santa Clara-based Nvidia (NVDA) fell almost 10 percent (more than 3 points), followed by Palo Alto's VMWare (VMW), which fell more than 8 percent (just over 7 points) .

There wasn't much good news for Bay Area stocks, but San Francisco's Gap, Inc. (GPS) gained a little over a half-point to close up by almost 3 percent. Mountain View-based Intuit (INTU) was right behind, gaining close to a point (2.89 percent) and San Francisco's Charles Schwab (SCHW) was up more than a half-point for a 2.61 percent gain.
