Dow Ends At Lowest Level Since May; MCD's Shares Near 52-Week Low

Stocks fell once again today with the Dow Jones ending at its lowest level since May 20th. Stocks continue to get dragged down as investors worry about rising global tension despite reports of an improving U.S. economy. Many Americans are still feeling the aftermath of the recession that lasted from December 2007 until June 2009. Nearly a quarter of Americans said that they are "just getting by" financially and 13% said that they are struggling to get by. The Dow's stocks have been struggling since it reached its record high on July 16, with only 4 stocks in positive territory at today's close.
The stocks that were hit the hardest are United Technologies (UTX) which is down 9.2% and Caterpillar (CAT) which is down 8.9%.
