Among stocks that fell today, Olympus plunged 24 percent to 1,555 yen in Tokyo. At least six brokerages cut their ratings on the optical-equipment maker after Michael C. Woodford was dismissed as president on Oct. 14 amid a row with the board over fees paid during the 2008 purchase of Gyrus Group Plc.

European stocks fell as a German government spokesman said that euro-area leaders will not provide a complete fix to the debt crisis at their next meeting.
G-20 finance ministers and central bank governors concluded weekend talks in Paris endorsing parts of the emerging plan to avoid a Greek default, bolster banks and curb contagion. Stocks erased earlier gains after Steffen Seibert, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s chief spokesman, told reporters in Berlin that European leaders won’t fulfill “dreams” of a quick end to the debt crisis at the Oct. 23 summit.
National benchmark indexes fell in all of the 18 western- European markets. France’s CAC 40 Index slipped 1.6 percent. Germany’s DAX Index lost 1.8 percent and the U.K.’s FTSE 100 Index fell 0.5 percent. Greece’s ASE Index plunged 3 percent.

U.S. stocks declined, after the biggest weekly gain in the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index since 2009, as financial shares slumped and the German government damped optimism of a quick fix to Europe’s debt crisis.
Dow 11,397.00 -247.49 -2.13%, Nasdaq 2,614.92 -52.93 -1.98%, S&P 500 1,200.86 -23.72 -1.94%
Banks in the S&P 500 tumbled 6.3 percent as a group. Wells Fargo dropped 8.4 percent to $24.42. Investors shrugged off the record profit posted by Wells Fargo today and focused on a 6 percent decline in revenue to $19.6 billion. That missed the $20.2 billion estimate of analysts as low interest rates cut into profit on loans.
Citigroup retreated 1.7 percent to $27.93, even as its quarterly profit beat analysts’ estimates, helped by an accounting gain and a reduction in losses tied to soured loans. Excluding the accounting adjustment, revenue fell 8 percent.
Alcoa, the largest U.S. aluminum producer, slumped 6.6 percent to $9.58. The shares had the biggest decline in the Dow. Caterpillar retreated 3.1 percent to $81.52.
Gannett slumped 8.7 percent to $9.99. The owner of 82 newspapers and 23 television stations reported third-quarter profit decreased 1.6 percent as publishing revenue, including advertising and circulation, declined 5.3 percent.
Halliburton Co., the world’s second-largest oilfield services provider, fell 7.9 percent to $34.48 on concern for oil-price volatility and the slower than expected growth in its international business.
El Paso Corp. surged 25 percent, the most since 2002, to $24.45, as Kinder Morgan Inc. agreed to buy the company for $21.1 billion. The cash and stock offer is valued at $26.87 per El Paso share, or 37 percent more than the Oct. 14 closing price, Houston-based Kinder Morgan said in a statement yesterday.
