US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Wall Street slips at open after Saudi attacks; energy stocks surge

Sept 16 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks opened lower on Monday as the weekend attack on Saudi Arabian crude facilities knocked out 5% of the world’s supply and added to global growth worries, while the beaten down energy stocks soared as oil prices jumped more than 10%.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 73.46 points, or 0.27%, at the open to 27,146.06.

The S&P 500 opened lower by 10.98 points, or 0.37%, at 2,996.41. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 55.07 points, or 0.67%, to 8,121.64 at the opening bell. (Reporting by Medha Singh in Bengaluru; Editing by Maju Samuel)
