(Newser) – US stock indexes finished a bumpy day mostly lower as losses for phone companies and banks outweighed gains in health care stocks, the AP reports.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index lost 2 points, or 0.1%, to 2,341. It was down almost 1% earlier. The Dow Jones industrial average gave back 45 points, or 0.2%, to 20,550. The Nasdaq rose 11 points, or 0.2%, to 5,840. About as many stocks rose as fell on the New York Stock Exchange. (Read more Dow Jones stories.)
