The stock market turned into correction territory Monday, shedding 49 points to close at 1,881.
Investors' concern about the Fed's lack of action on interest rates and an overall uncertainty in the economy contributed to the sell-off. The S&P 500 has been falling since its recent high of 1,995 on Sept. 16 — a 6 percent drop in just eight trading days.
But there is some silver lining. If you had invested wisely (or, maybe invested luckily) you could be still be making money. Just 8 percent of stocks in the S&P 500 are positive since the short-term high on Sept. 16.
Many of the top stocks trading positive are in utilities, which some traders treat as safe havens during periods of volatility.
The top stock among the S&P is Cablevision. The company, based on New York's Long Island, is set to be bought by Altice for $17.7 billion. The deal will create the fourth largest cable operator in the U.S. Cablevision's board is being investigated over dealings with the acquisition.
