NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks fell Thursday as worries about the soundness of a European bank spooked U.S. investors, prompting them to sell stocks and snap up less risky assets. Fears emerged overnight about the financial stability of Espirito Santo International, a holding company that is the largest shareholder in a group of firms, including the parent of Portugal’s largest bank, Banco Espirito Santo.

Thursday’s stock selling started in Europe, and spread to the U.S, where the Dow Jones industrial average plunged within the first half hour of trading.
