Plus, Apple is still taking heat over the slower than expected iPhone sales.


MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL The S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) is down again after its brief rebound yesterday, falling 3.43 or .24% as of 2:15 p.m. EDT today. One of the more notable stock declines is McDonald's (NYSE:MCD), which fell $1.48 to $91.79 most likely due to its slow global sales and quarterly earnings growth this year. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has also been suffering poor fortune lately, as its share dropped 1.62% to $670.29 due to concerns over the worse than expected iPhone 5 sales. Still, today’s big loser is First Solar Inc. (NASDAQ:FSLR), which fell $.92 to $22.19, despite an over 10% increase yesterday.
