Option A - Incorrect
Disappointing investments; wrong sentence combination

Option B - Incorrect
Unexpectedly fluctuate; wrong word combination

Option C - Incorrect
This suffers the same fate as option A above. Disappointing investments thus render this option as redundant.

Option D - correct
Correct answer; concise and follows parallelism.

Option E - Incorrect
This option deviates from the true meaning of the sentence. Its meaning was altered by the wrong choice of words. This option is not good fit.
