U.S. stocks ended Thursday's choppy session lower as losses among energy and industrials companies weighed on broader indexes. Big losses in the Dow Jones Transportation Average , which tipped over into correction territory, also contributed to negative sentiment, according to analysts. Dow Transports fell 0.8%, to 8,249.25 and is down more than 10% from its peak reached last November. The S&P 500 closed 6.25 points, or 0.3%, lower at 2,102.33. The Dow Jones Industrial Average shed 75.37 points, or 0.4%, to 17,890.360. The Nasdaq Composite ended the day down 10.22 points, or 0.2% at 5,112.19.
