Thursday Evening Business Brief
Europe's financial contagion has been catching Wall Street in its grip this week. The Dow today fell 135 points to 11,771. The S&P was down 21 points, while the Nasdaq slipped 52 points. For the key averages, the declines ranged between 1.1 to 2 percent.
  • Gap reports a 36 percent drop in third-quarter profit, but slightly better than analysts expected on a per share basis. Deep discounting and higher production costs continue to crimp the retailing parent's performance.

  • Oil prices today tumbled nearly 4 percent. The decline of $3.77 to $98.82 to reflects fears about the future of the European Union and the global economy.
