BUZZ-Atlantic Power Corp: Stock's worst day in 18 months

(Updates with Tuesday’s trade)

** Power producer’s Canadian-listed and U.S.-listed shares down 34 pct, their steepest fall since March 2013

** Stock is biggest percentage loser on TSX and NYSE; with over 1.7 million shares traded, is among the busiest on the TSX

** Boston-based company decides against selling itself, chops dividend by 70 pct, asks CEO to step down

** Says may still sell assets or enter JVs, partly to pay off debt, which has quadrupled in the last four years
