Wall Street tumbled Friday, with the Dow
Jones industrial posting a triple-digit loss and dipping into negative ground
for the year, as investors were spooked by lackluster earnings from General
Electric Co. and Citigroup Co. â€” both Dow Jones industrials â€” and
surging energy prices. … The Dow Jones industrial average was lately down
171.29 points, or 1.57 percent, giving up all of the 325 points it had gained
so far this year. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index sank
19.43 points, or 1.51 percent, while the technology-rich Nasdaq Composite index
tumbled 46.30 points, or 2.01 percent. Bonds continued falling, with the yield
on the 10-year Treasury note rising to 4.38 percent from 4.37 percent late Thursday.
The dollar was mixed against other major currencies in European trading.
