On the last trading day of September, stocks delivered one last gut punch to investors, putting the finishing touches on an ugly month for Wall Street. The Dow lost 158 points, reversing earlier gains as a failed Republican spending plan fanned fears of a potential government shutdown. The blue-chip index clocked its worst month since February. 

The S&P 500 erased its lead from earlier today as well, on the way to a fourth-straight weekly loss and worst month since December. And while the Nasdaq scored daily and weekly wins, it also logged its worst month since December. To top it all off, all three major indexes finished the quarter with steep losses.   

  • At least Nike stock finished the month strong.
  • Unpacking the third-quarter's grand finale.
  • Plus, bull notes buoy these two stocks, and what to expect the first week of October.
