The cost to insure the firm’s debt against nonpayment climbed the most in nearly a year last month after WeWork’s efforts to go public failed and Uber Technologies Inc.’s valuation sagged. The value of SoftBank’s stake in Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. also plunged about $6.1 billion in a single day following a tumble in the Chinese company’s shares on news that the White House is weighing limits on U.S. portfolio flows into China.
