Weak profit picture and economy worries hurt Wall Street

By Kristina Cooke
October 21. 2008

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Stocks skidded on Tuesday, as commodity shares fell on fears of a global recession and a rash of disappointing earnings heightened worries about the deteriorating profit picture.

Oil companies and miners weighed on the broader market as commodity prices slid and miner Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold’s profit dropped sharply. Freeport McMoran’s shares fell 10.8 percent.

With further signs that credit markets were starting to heal, investors’ attention turned to the dismal profit outlook.

Earnings disappointments were widespread. Tech bellwether Texas Instruments Inc warned of slowing sales for its widely used analog chips, while chemical company DuPont Co cut its full-year forecast.

Technology companies slid, driving the Nasdaq down more than 4 percent, ahead of results from iPod maker Apple and Internet company Yahoo.

Poll: Americans angry, worried over state of nation

From Paul Steinhauser
CNN Deputy Political Director

WASHINGTON (CNN) — A new national poll suggests that only a quarter of Americans think things are going well in the country today, while the rest of those questioned are angry, scared and stressed out.

Seventy-five percent of those surveyed in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll released Tuesday said things are going badly in the United States.

An equal portion of those polled said they are angry about the way things are going. Two-thirds of those questioned said they’re scared about the way things are going and three in four said the current conditions in the country are stressing them out.

“It’s scary how many Americans admit they are scared,” said Keating Holland, CNN’s polling director. “Americans tend to downplay the amount of fear they have when facing tough times. The fact that more than six in 10 say that they are scared shows how bad things are getting.”
