How the Dow Jones industrial average fared Tuesday

Major U.S. stock indexes finished modestly lower on Tuesday as a thin slate of economic news and corporate results left investors unwilling to drive up a market that hit three record highs last week.

General Motors and teen retailers American Eagle and Urban Outfitters were among the stocks to make big moves lower even as the broader market changed little for the second day in a row.

On Tuesday:

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 67.43 points, or 0.4 percent, to 16,351.25.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index declined 9.54 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,867.63.

The Nasdaq composite slid 27.26 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,307.19.

For the week:

The Dow is down 101.47 points, or 0.6 percent.

The S&P 500 is down 10.41 points, or 0.6 percent.

The Nasdaq is down 29.04 points, or 0.7 percent.

For the year so far:

The Dow is down 225.41 points, or 1.4 percent.

The S&P 500 is up 19.27 points, or 1 percent.

The Nasdaq is up 130.60 points, or 3.1 percent.
