(Newser) – An afternoon pullback in technology shares pulled broader market indexes mostly lower on Wall Street, the AP reports. The market got off to a good start on Thursday with major indexes all heading to more record highs. That ended in the early afternoon when tech shares, which have far outpaced other industries this year, took a tumble. CA plunged 10% following reports that talks with BMC Software had ended. Other tech names also faded. Apple lost 1.9% and Microsoft fell 1.2%. The Standard & Poor's 500 fell 2 points, or 0.1%, to 2,475. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 85 points, or 0.4%, to 21,796. The Nasdaq lost 40 points, or 0.6%, to 6,382. (Read more stock market stories.)
