Oil and Gas: Down 3.1%

Financials: Down 2.9%

Basic Materials: Down 2.6%

Industrials: Down 2.5%

Technology: Down 2.2%

The sell off has accelerated for a number of financials, as yields on government debt surged to levels that precipitated the crisis in Europe. Morgan Stanley is still plagued by news on Monday that investors were suing for misleading advisory on mortgage transactions.  Meanwhile, Adobe’s announcement of layoffs and restructuring made it the S&P laggard to beat.

Stocks leading the decline:

Adobe Systems: Down 11.0%

Computer Science: Down 10.4%

Morgan Stanley: Down 6.6%

Auto Desk: Down 6.4%

PulteGroup: Down 6.2%
