5 Worst-Performing Dow Stocks in February
Investors holding shares of Dow component companies that finished in the red last month probably couldve lived without the extra day afforded by the Leap Year.
While the Dow as a whole moved above 13,000 points albeit briefly for the first time since May 2008 and gained 2.53% for the month, it wasnt all roses and chocolates for some investors.
In fact, for some Dow components (and their investors), February was a bit of a heartbreaker. Obviously, its only a measure of 29 days worth of performance and, for some of these decliners, were really only talking about a few cents a share.
Heres an interactive slide show highlighting the 5 worst-performing Dow component stocks for February 2012.
