(Newser) – Stocks are ending slightly lower on Wall Street, ending a 10-day winning streak for the Dow Jones industrial average, the AP reports. The market was higher at lunchtime but veered lower in the afternoon Tuesday. Health care and technology companies were among the biggest decliners, outweighing gains in utilities stocks. Energy stocks also fell along with the price of crude oil. The declines accelerated slightly in the last half-hour of trading as President Donald Trump denounced North Korea's nuclear program. The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 6 points, or 0.2%, to 2,474. The Dow lost 33 points, or 0.2%, to 22,085. The Nasdaq composite fell 13 points, or 0.2%, to 6,370.
