The 4 Worst Dow Stocks Of 2015
The Dow Jones Industrial Average was off to a rough start in 2015, before rebounding this week.
Here are the four worst-performing Dow stocks so far:
4. American Express Co (NYSE: AXP)
American Express stock is down 5.8 percent already this year. The struggling financial sector has dragged the credit card company down. The company reported earnings earlier this week.
3. Caterpillar Inc (NYSE: CAT)
Caterpillar stock is down 6.7 percent since the turn of the calendar. Oil industry demand for Caterpillar’s heavy machinery will likely be very soft in the foreseeable future, and investors are worried about how that will affect the company’s bottom line.
Caterpillar reports Q4 earnings on January 27.
2. Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE: GS)
Goldman Sachs stock is down 8.6 percent since New Years Day.
Unprecedented levels of regulation on the trading practices of big banks, along with a continued environment of low interest rates have put major pressure on bank margins.
1. JPMorgan Chase & Co (NYSE: JPM)
JP Morgan has earned the dubious distinction as the worst-performing stock in the Dow 30 so far this year, as well as the only stock to have suffered a double-digit percent drop at -10.7 percent. Oppenheimer recently said the stock was still cheap.
