Apple's Stock Tumble Can Be Blamed For Dow Futures' Drop

Apple Inc.'s stock tumbled 8.2% in premarket trade Wednesday, putting them on track to open at a two-month low, after the technology giant reported disappointing quarterly results. The stock's price decline of $8.60 would shave about 59 points off the Dow Jones Industrial Average , which is a price-weighted index. Dow futures were down 40 points ahead of the open.
