(Newser) – US stocks ended broadly lower after an up-and-down day marked by a deluge of earnings news, the AP reports. Investors sold bonds Thursday, sending yields higher.

Drugmaker Celgene jumped 6% after reporting earnings that easily beat analysts' forecasts. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 29 points, or 0.2%, to 18,169. The Standard & Poor's 500 index slipped 6 points, or 0.3%, to 2,133. The Nasdaq composite lost 34 points, or 0.7%, to 5,215. (Read more Dow Jones stories.)
