(Newser) – Stocks closed broadly lower on Wall Street, giving the market its third straight loss, the AP reports. Health care, technology and energy companies accounted for the bulk of the market's slide Wednesday, offsetting gains in materials stocks and utilities. Several retailers also rose. Smaller companies fell more than the rest of the market. General Electric lost 7.9%, and Pfizer fell 2.4%. Abercrombie & Fitch surged 20% after reporting results that were much better than analysts expected. The S&P 500 index fell 18 points, or 0.7%, to 2,771. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gave up 133 points, or 0.5%, to 25,673. The Nasdaq fell 70 points, or 0.9%, to 7,505. (Read more stock market stories.)
