Samsung Shares Fall After Apple Wins $1 Billion Verdict

Samsung Electronics Co. fell the most in almost four years in Seoul trading after a U.S. jury found the mobile-phone maker infringed Apple Inc.’s patents and ordered the South Korean company to pay more than $1 billion.

Samsung dropped as much as 6.9 percent, the biggest drop since October 2008, to 1,187,000 won before trading at 1,188,000 won as of 9:05 a.m. on the Korea Exchange, while the benchmark Kospi index declined 0.6 percent.
