SAP Sends Warning for Software Earnings With Forecast
(Bloomberg) -- Dire earnings results at SAP SE wiped out more than 35 billion euros ($41 billion) from the German software company's market value in a matter of minutes, sending a warning to tech investors about the health of the business software industry.In a surprise release late Sunday, SAP, one of Europe's largest tech companies, cut its revenue forecast for the full year and said it expected the fresh wave of Covid-19 lockdowns to hurt demand through the first half of 2021. The results caused shares to fall the most ever in a single day, according to data compiled by Bloomberg since 1989.SAP's collapse caused the wider tech market to drop, with Europe's Stoxx Technology index falling 7.6%, its biggest one-day loss since March.

Many of these companies, which deliver applications or services over the internet, have so far resisted the worst effects of a pandemi
