BALTIMORE (Stockpickr) -- Selloff. Correction. Car crash. Whatever you want to call it, last week's 1.4% drop in the S&P 500 was ugly -- especially in the context of the selling the week before. Five of the last seven trading sessions have ended lower, and Thursday's decline rang the bell as the biggest single-day drop in two months (and one of just a handful of declines that nasty all year long).
Once again, the big indices didn't show the full force of the damage. For example, only two Nasdaq 100 components ended higher than they started on Thursday, while one in three stocks in the tech-heavy large-cap index ended the session 2% lower or worse.
