TOKYO -- SoftBank Group's share price rally ended abruptly on Monday after the collapse of one of its investments raised fresh worries over the quality of the technology group's assets.

SoftBank's stock price fell more than 10% early on Monday after gaining 45% last week on its announcement that it will sell or cash in $41 billion in assets. The company's shares closed down 5%.
