Bank of America, HP, United Technologies: Dow Movers

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- U.S. stocks fell sharply Friday on fresh worries about the eurozone's stability spurred by a spike in Spanish borrowing costs.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 121 points, or 0.93%, to close at 12,823. The blue-chip index still managed to book a 0.46% gain and it's up 4.95% year-to-date.

Breadth within the Dow was negative with 27 of the index's 30 components posting losses.

The biggest percentage decliners were Bank of America ( BAC), Hewlett-Packard ( HPQ) and United Technologies ( UTX).

Bank of America shares declined 2.62% to $7.07. The bank's stock has risen 27.16% year to date.

Shares of United Technologies lost 2.1% to $74.23. The stock has risen 1.56% year to date.

Hewlett-Packard shares fell 2.57% to $18.60. The printer company declared its regular quarterly dividend of 13.2 cents a share on Friday.

HP's stock has fallen 27.78% year to date.

Though not one of the biggest laggards, shares of Travelers lost 1.54% to $62.71. The stock has risen 5.98% so far in 2012. The insurance giant Thursday reported a profit for the second quarter, a swing from a year-earlier loss, but earnings came in below analysts' expectations.

The biggest gainer in the blue-chip index was Wal-Mart ( WMT). Shares rose 1.01% to $72.25. The stock has gained 20.9% year to date.
