NEW YORK, Dec 1 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks fell in a broad decline 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 holiday shopping season got off to a tepid start.

The day's losses were broad, with eight of the ten primary S&P 500 sectors lower on the day. Industrials were the day's biggest decliners, pressured by manufacturing data that still pointed to sluggish demand.

Apple Inc was one of the biggest weights on the session, falling 3.2 percent to $115.07 in its biggest one-day decline since September. It tumbled shortly after the open in its largest one-minute volume in more than a month in what some traders deemed a "mini-flash crash."
