Janna Herron USA TODAY Published 3:00 PM EDT May 7, 2019 The Dow tumbled more than 500 points on Tuesday afternoon as trade worries loomed again over the stock market. Investors, who previously hoped this week’s trade negotiations with China would lead to a resolution, now questioned the progress following unexpected threats from the White House of impending tariff hikes. “The Trump administration's doubling down on the China threats has been a gut punch to bulls,” says Daniel Ives, managing director of equity research at Wedbush Securities. “Investors do not want to add risk going into trade talks this week given the shot across the bow from the administration.” The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 505 points, or 1.91%, to 25,934 in afternoon trading, while the Standard & Poor's 500 fell 53 points, or 1.82%, to 2,879.

It’s been happening in slow motion — so slow you may not even have noticed. But by now the change is unmistakable: The market is half the size of its mid-1990s peak, and 25 percent smaller than it was in 1976. “This is troubling for the economy, for innovation and for transparence,” said René Stulz, an Ohio State finance professor who has written a new report on these issues for the National Bureau of Economic Research. When I say “shrinking,” I’m using a specific definition: the reduction in the number of publicly traded companies on exchanges in the United States.
