Sellers showed up to the markets in a big way today and we saw the same growth stocks that spiked higher a few days back, give some of those gains right back.

The selling started early with earnings plays, ITT Corporation ( ITT ) and Simon Property Group ( SPG ) . There was a good amount of selling in commodity-related plays. Oil and Gas-related shares were hit hard, with Anadarko Petroleum ( APC ) , Halliburton ( HAL ) , and Diamond Offshore ( DO ) some of the hardest hit. Elsewhere, there was a huge sell-off in shares of Goldman Sachs ( GS ) on the potential the SEC investigation will go much deeper than previously thought. Other well-known dividend plays deeply in the red by the end of the day, included Cummins Inc. ( CMI ) , Aetna ( AET ) and Macy's ( M ) .

We removed another aggressive play from our recommended list today, so be sure to check out the link below if you did not read the e-mail alert we sent out earlier.


As we look ahead to next week's earnings, there will be another slew of big names reporting. Some of the names include Merck ( MRK ) , Clorox ( CLX ) , Mastercard ( MA ) , and Kraft Foods ( KFT ) . Be sure to check out this weekend's watchlist updates on Dividend.com Premium.
