The majority of stocks on Wall Street fell Wednesday.

Only about two dozen companies survived a punishing session Wednesday on Wall Street. Specifically, 25 of the S&P’s more than 500 constituents finished in positive territory, while the S&P 500 tumbled 1.8% to finish at 2,887.61, as fears about an economic slowdown gripped Wall Street.

The decline in U.S. equities represented the worst daily slump for the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +0.77% , as well as the Dow Jones Industrial Average /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA +0.80% and the Nasdaq Composite Index /zigman2/quotes/210598365/realtime COMP +0.73% , since Aug. 23.

Here are the 25 S&P components, the majority of which are real-estate companies, that managed to post a gain on the session, led by Lennar Corp. after the home builder delivered third-quarter results that topped analysts forecasts:

On Wednesday, a private-sector employment report from Automatic Data Processing /zigman2/quotes/207661132/composite ADP +0.61% sank market sentiment, showing a modest 135,000 jobs were created in September. The weaker-than-expected data came a day after the Institute for Supply Management’s manufacturing survey produced its worst reading since 2009.

All 11 sectors of the S&P 500 declined on Wednesday, led by a 2.6% skid in the energy sector /zigman2/quotes/206420077/composite XLE +0.77% and a 2.1% tumble in the financial sector /zigman2/quotes/206420077/composite XLE +0.77% , as yields of government bonds, which move inversely to prices, slumped.
