Dow and S&P 500 can't hold historic levels after Icahn warns about a future decline.
All three of today's big laggards struggle with quickly shifting industry dynamics.
First there was the Dow Jones Industrial Average trading above 16,000. The S&P 500 fell , while the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped and the small-cap Russell 2000, which hadn't been joining the new-high party recently, dipped . Big losers included International Gaming Technology (IGT), which fell 5.6% to $16.84, Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), which dropped 4.4% to $186.04 as oil fell, Safeway (SWY), which declined 4.3% to $33.04 after it was started at Neutral by Goldman Sachs, and Consol Energy (CNX) which finished off 4% at $34.56 after Citigroup cut it to Neutral from Buy. When in doubt, blame Carl Icahn.

The most recent short interest data has been released by the NASDAQ for the 10/31/2013 settlement date, and we here at Dividend Channel like to sift through this fresh data and order the underlying components of the S&P 500 by "days to cover." There are a number of ways to look at short data, for example the total number of shares short; but one metric that we find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares typically traded. The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed.
