United shares dropped nearly 1 percent after the airline forcibly removed a passenger from a flight. A 30-second clip circulated on social media shows a man being dragged by security after refusing to leave an overbooked flight. He was randomly selected, among 3 other passengers, after no one volunteered to get rebooked on another flight. United's CEO Oscar Munoz said "this is an upsetting event to all of us here at United," and he apologized for the need to re-book customers. He said, "our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened."

Shares of J.B. Hunt Transport Services sank over 2 percent after competitors Swift Transportation and Knight Transportation announced a merger. The combination of the two truck companies will be worth over $5 billion.
