Wall Street drops as earnings, Spain’s debt spark fears
(Reuters) – Stocks slid more than 1 percent on Tuesday as poor earnings from major multinationals confirmed fears about the slowing global economy and Moody’s downgraded credit ratings for regions in Spain.
A number of the disappointing results including Dupont and United Technologies came from companies with operations across the globe and in many industries. The weak earnings and dwindling revenues have led to cost-cutting that will add to lost jobs in order to protect profits.
“The writing has been on the wall for a while,” said Peter Jankovskis, co-chief investment officer at OakBrook Investments LLC in Lisle, Illinois.
