New York - Stocks tumbled Thursday after a disappointing ISM report on manufacturing piled on to worries about the economic recovery.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost more than 200 points, or 2.1 percent.

The Institute for Supply Management reported its gauge of manufacturing activity fell to 52.6 in September from 52.9 in August, short of expectations.

That came after an earlier report showed initial jobless claims jumped by 17,000 last week, much more than expected.
