A correction is typically defined as a 10% drop for a stock or an index from a recent peak, while a bear market is a 20%-plus decrease. Data supplied by FactSet show that, as of the end of last week, 264 (53%) of S&P 500 companies are in bear markets.

With stocks closing down another 500 points on Monday and investors seriously on edge, that 53% may well keep ticking up as the week presses on.
