Tesla pulls S&P 500 lower for second day in index


By Noel Randewich
(Reuters) – Shares of Tesla dropped 4% on Tuesday, down for a second straight day following the electric car maker’s debut in the S&P 500.
The stock has lost 10% since Friday, when it hit a record high as investment funds that passively track the S&P 500 bought $90 billion worth of Tesla shares so that their portfolios reflected the changes to the Wall Street’s most followed benchmark.
For a second day, Tesla’s stock contributed more than any other to the S&P 500’s decline. The S&P 500 was last down 0.1%.
