NEW YORK, Dec 1 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks fell in a broad selloff on Monday, with the S&P 500 suffering its biggest one-day drop in more than a month, as economic data indicated weakness across the globe and the U.S. holiday shopping season got off to a tepid start.

The day's losses were broad, with seven of the ten primary S&P 500 sectors lower on the day. Only one group - utilities , which are a defensive play - rose sharply, while energy shares inched up a mere 0.1 percent despite a rebound of 3.7 percent in the price of crude oil.

Apple Inc was one of the biggest weights on the session, falling 2.3 percent to $116.15 in its biggest one-day decline since September. The tech giant tumbled shortly after the open, falling more than 3 percent in a minute that also saw the largest one-minute volume in more than a month.
