(Newser) – Stocks are closing lower on Wall Street as the market pulls back after three days of gains, the AP reports. Banks led the declines Thursday as long-term interest rates fell, which will make lending money less profitable. Wells Fargo and Bank of America each fell 2%. Restoration Hardware plunged 21% after reporting a big drop in earnings. JM Smucker rose 8% after reporting strong quarterly results. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 19 points, or 0.1%, to 17,985. The Standard & Poor's 500 index dropped 3 points, or 0.2%, to 2,115. The Nasdaq composite index declined 16 points, or 0.3%, to 4,958.
