As of Friday's close, 80% of stocks in the Russell 3,000 are down year to date, and a whopping 17% are down more than 50%. 

In the chart below, we highlight the year to date change of each stock in the Russell 3,000 sorted by performance (100% to -100% scale).  As shown, the red takes up much more area than the green, and it gets pretty ugly towards the tail end on the right side.
