Stocks Headed for Lower Finish

All sectors in the S&P 500 are in red in late trading. Industrials are leading the losses in the S&P 500 in trading currently. At last check, the sector was down 1.27%. Financials have also fallen sharply in late trading. At last check, the sector was down 1.25%. Conglomerates are also down 1.25% in trading currently. Energy sector is currently trading 1.18% lower. Among the major movers in late trading include Universal Display Corporation (NASDAQ: PANL), which is currently trading 10.80% lower at $29.23, Dillard’s Inc. (NYSE: DDS), which is currently trading 9.27% lower at $77.05, Zynga Inc. (NASDAQ: ZNGA), which is currently trading 10.50% higher at $3.53, Endo Health Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ: ENDP), which is currently trading 8.38% higher at $30.39, 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE: DDD), which is currently trading 10.03% lower at $34.16, General Cable Corporation (NYSE: BGC), which is currently trading 6.85% lower at $31.83, and Ruckus Wireless Inc. (NYSE: RKUS), which is currently trading 8.50% higher at $21.31. European markets ended mostly higher earlier today as initial exit poll results showed that the center left coalition was leading in the Italian election. The FTSE 100 Index in London closed 0.31% higher, and the CAC 40 Index in Paris closed 0.41% higher. Asian markets ended mostly higher overnight, with the Nikkei 225 Index in Japan closing 2.43% higher, and the Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong closing 0.17% higher.
