TOKYO (Reuters) - Shares of SoftBank Group <9984.T> fell more than 4% in early trade on Thursday after the Japanese conglomerate reported a $6.5 billion (£5.06 billion) quarterly loss, its first such loss in 14 years, dragged down by a massive hit at its giant Vision Fund.

The stock was down 3.4% as of 0022 GMT after shedding as much as 4.2%.
