The U.S. market's strong advances came to an abrupt end today as the Dow is now in the red for the year and the S&P 500 ended its 4-day winning streak.

Crude oil fell an additional 2.3% today to $80.60 a barrel, pushing gas prices further below the $3 mark. Is Apple the perfect stock? Many investors are beginning to think so.
