Quiksilver Inc.'s shares headed lower Monday, extending a two-week slump amid investor jitters over sluggish sales at surf shops and unfavorable foreign currency rates. The Huntington Beach sportswear company's stock fell $3 a share to $21.80 on the New York Stock Exchange and is off nearly 23% since shares hit a three-month high of $28.20 on May 22. Gloomy weather and a slowing economy have conspired to drag down the sale of surfwear--along with retail sales in general, analysts say.
