Shares of 3M Co. /zigman2/quotes/205029460/composite MMM -1.42% sank 3.0% in morning trading Tuesday, enough to pace the Dow Jones Industrial Average's /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA -0.26% decliners and to put them on track to close at a 5 1/2-month low.

The stock has now shed 9.1% since closing at a two-year high of $207.33 on May 10, 2021.
