The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is on course to start the week with another decline. In late trade, the benchmark index is down 0.6% to 6,435 points.
Four ASX shares that are falling more than most today are listed below. Hereâs why they are tumbling:
Bega Cheese Ltd (ASX: BGA)
The Bega share price is down 8% to $4.00. This appears to have been driven by a broker note out of UBS this morning. According to the note, the broker has downgraded the diversified food companyâs shares to a neutral rating and cut the price target on them to $4.75. UBS believes that higher input costs are going to stifle Begaâs recovery.
Fortescue Metals Group Limited (ASX: FMG)
The Fortescue share price is down 8.5% to $17.03. Investors have been selling Fortescue and other mining shares today following a pullback in commodity prices. This saw the iron ore price drop a sizeable 7% on Friday night. The S&P/ASX 200 Resources index is down 5.1% this afternoon.
Santos Ltd (ASX: STO)
The Santos share price has dropped 6% to $7.34. Investors have been selling Santos and other energy shares after oil prices sank on Friday night. Traders were selling down oil prices amid concerns that rising rates could cause a global recession and weigh on demand. This has led to the S&P/ASX 200 Energy index falling 5.3% on Monday.
Silver Lake Resources Limited (ASX: SLR)
The Silver Lake share price is down 9% to $1.48. This follows weakness in the gold sector today which has seen the S&P/ASX All Ords Gold index tumble over 5% on Monday. The precious metal pulled back on Friday amid strength in the US dollar.
