The bond market continued to be a source of consternation for many investors, with rates rising through the 3% level for the 10-year Treasury, marking an important psychological milestone in what some predict could be a multiyear bear market for bonds. Earnings reports also brought downward pressure on certain companies, despite what was overall been a generally favorable season thus far. Polaris Industries (NYSE:PII), Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE:FCX), and Waters (NYSE:WAT) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
