Wild day on the markets today. Things may perk up by the close, but the Dow is currently off
320 388 412 points, or 2.8%, and the the Nasdaq and S&P 500 are doing worse. Only two Dow stocks are up, 3M and P&G, and some stocks are crazy crunched, like Akamai (off 21%), and TheStreet (off 16%).
Gainers are always interesting on days like this. Leading the way on Nasdaq are Baidu.com, Vignette, and Omniture, all up middle-teens in percentage terms.
[Update] Ohhhh, it’s Dvorak’s fault. Wish I’d seen this yesterday and been able to get out of the markets in time.
