Stocks finish lower as recession worries deepen


NEW YORK (AP) -- Wall Street has finished sharply lower as investors digested more signs of economic weakness, including a huge round of layoffs at a key company in the financial sector.

  After a turbulent week that sent the Dow Jones industrials down nearly 340 points, investors found few positives in the latest news, even shrugging off a better-than-expected reading on industrial production.

  Stocks zigzagged throughout the session before finishing sharply lower.

  In a signal that banks are still struggling, Citigroup Inc. is cutting another 53,000 jobs in the coming quarters.

  The Dow Jones industrials finished down 231 points at the 8,265 level.
