Which companies top the biggest losers list?

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is a collection of 30 large and widely held U.S.-based companies that acts as a bellwether for the overall stock market. While the index has lost 5.4% in the month of November, its bottom 10 companies have seen their stock prices fall even farther.

Of course, a stock's price can drop for reasons both significant (the emergence of a more powerful competitor) and insignificant (tax selling). A large drop in stock price could offer a unique buying opportunity, but it could also present a value trap.

That's why we've paired the 10 biggest Dow losers for the month of November with the intelligence of our 120,000-member-strong Motley Fool CAPS community. Each company's CAPS rating should offer some insight into how our community views the company. As always, though, you should conduct your own fundamental research.

For the month of November, here are the Dow's 10 biggest market losers:
