Disappointing quarterly reports from both Dow components sent their shares down sharply. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 181.12 points, or 1%, to 17,919.29. The S&P 500 ended 9.07 points, or 0.4%, lower at 2,119.21. The Nasdaq Composite retreated from the record close set a day earlier, settling 10.74 points, or 0.2%, lower at 5,208.12.
