Energy companies led US stock indexes broadly lower as the price of crude oil declined, the AP reports. Marathon Oil slumped 4.1% Monday. Phone company and real estate stocks were also lower. Newell Brands, which makes Rubbermaid and Sharpie products, fell 5.7% after reporting revenue that fell short of analysts' estimates. Hasbro soared 14.1% after its results came in way ahead of forecasts. The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 4 points, or 0.2%, to 2,292. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 19 points, or 0.1%, to 20,052. The Nasdaq fell 3 points, or 0.1%, to 5,663. (More Dow Jones stories.)
