aufgrund der Besorgnis


Explanation:
The term is really not "to fall on concern" rather than "to fall" which means - as I'm sure you know - "fallen" and "on concern" which means "aufgrund von Besorgnis". The preposition "on" in this context indicates a causal relationship to the object following it. Thus, the sentence should read something like:
"US Aktien fielen aufgrund der Besorgnis darüber, daß die sich verlangsamende Wirtschaft dem Profitwachstum der(/bei den) meisten Firmen schaden würde."

Cheerio,
Dierk
