(Newser) – Stocks ended an up-and-down day mostly down on Wall Street as losses by industrial and technology companies offset strength in other sectors, the AP reports. General Electric slumped 4.7% Tuesday, and chipmaker Micron Technologies gave up 2.6%. Hertz dropped 10% after activist investor Carl Icahn cut his holdings in the car rental company. Several retailers rose, including Target and Kohl's, which reported results that were better than analysts were expecting. The S&P 500 index slipped 3 points, or 0.1%, to 2,789. The Dow Jones Industrial Average edged down 13 points, less than 0.1%, to 25,806. The Nasdaq was little changed at 7,576. More stocks fell than rose on the New York Stock Exchange.
