Facebook tumble pulls markets down
NEW YORK (AFP) - A sharp fall by Facebook and weakness in Apple's shares despite the strong iPhone 5 launch helped pull United States (US) markets lower on Monday.
But Google's push higher to a new record just above US$750 (S$918.31) a share limited the damage.
The Nasdaq Composite closed down 19.18 points (0.60 per cent) for the day to 3,160.78.
The S&P 500-stock index closed 3.26 points lower (0.22 per cent) at 1,456.89.
