(Newser) – Stock indexes closed broadly lower on Wall Street even as a surge in Apple's stock moved the company closer to being worth $1 trillion, the AP reports.

Elsewhere, losses for energy and industrial companies left major indexes lower. Anadarko Petroleum sank 4.9% after reporting weak results. The S&P 500 index fell 2 point, or 0.1%, to 2,813. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 81 points, or 0.3%, to 25,333. The Nasdaq composite gained 35 points, or 0.5%, to 7,707. More stocks fell than rose on the New York Stock Exchange.
