Stocks fell again on Wall Street, marking the fourth straight loss for the S&P 500 and putting the benchmark index on track for its first weekly drop since January, the AP reports. Technology companies and banks led the way lower Thursday. Utilities eked out gains as investors sought out safer holdings. With fourth-quarter earnings having wound down and lingering uncertainty over trade talks between the US and China, traders have had little reason to extend the gains the market has made since early this year. The S&P 500 fell 22 points, or 0.8%, to 2,748. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 200 points, or 0.8%, to 25,473. The Nasdaq lost 84 points, or 1.1%, to 7,421. (More stock market stories.)
