Stocks fall sharply on poor earnings - Yahoo Finance

The news echoes a common refrain of weakening demand heard elsewhere in the sector from companies such as Seagate, KLA-Tencor, and SanDisk. Contract manufacturing company Sanmina-SCI declined last night after revenue missed estimates and guidance disappointed. Dutch consumer-electronics giant Philips also dropped 5 percent on tepid sales, and Ericsson may fall on slow business with North American telecoms. In the industrial sector, Caterpillar is down almost 6 percent after earnings and revenue lagged estimates. A strong dollar is also weighing on international giants like Pfizer and DuPont.
