US STOCKS-Energy shares fall with oil, lead S&P 500 declines

NEW YORK, Sept 8 (Reuters) - Energy shares are among the biggest negatives on the Dow and S&P 500 on Monday, with oil prices falling more than $1 a barrel.

Shares of Exxon Mobil are down 1.4 percent, while shares of Chevron are down 1.3 percent, both leading declines on the Dow and S&P 500. The S&P energy index is down 1.6 percent, and the Arca oil and gas index is down 1.5 percent.

Second-quarter profit growth for the energy sector is up 16.4 percent from a year ago, second only to health care profit growth, at 18.6 percent, the data shows.
