U.N. inspectors report jars market

U.N. inspectors report jars market – Making News

Bob Dumas

Stocks fell sharply with the Dow Jones industrial average finishing below 8,000 for the first time since Oct. 14, as investors shrugged off upbeat news about the U.S. economy and focused instead on a sobering report from United Nations weapons inspectors that could indicate war between the U.S. and Iraq is inevitable.

While U.S. stock prices did fall, it was not as sharp a drop as some had feared it would be. In fact, the market’s main averages climbed into positive ground after the National Association of Realtors noted that sales of existing homes soared 5.2 percent to an annual rate of 5.86 million in December, up from November’s 5.57 million annual pace, finishing 2002 at a record level.

Below is a look at how some of the pool and spa industry’s most notable companies fared on Wall Street in recent weeks.
