A sharp drop in the price of oil on Monday rattled investors and helped push stocks lower across several industries. Investors sold from the start of trading following a decision by OPEC last week not to cut production. Seven of the 10 sectors of the Standard and Poor's 500 index fell, led by energy shares.
