NEW YORK (AP) — Weak sales from Wal-Mart and discouraging economic reports resulted in a down day on the stock market.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 42 points to close at 15,233 Thursday, a loss of 0.3 percent. Disney and Wal-Mart led the Dow lower.
The Standard & Poor's 500 fell eight to 1,650, or 0.5 percent. It was only the second loss for the S&P out of the last 11 days.
