U.S. stocks opened lower Thursday, tracking declines in European and Asia shares, after the Bank of Japan rattled investors by offering no additional stimulus measures. The S&P 500 shed 3 points, or 0.2%, to 2,091. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 44 points, or 0.2%, to 17,993. The Nasdaq Composite slipped 3 points, or 0.1%, to 4,853. A slightly weaker-than-expected report on U.S. first-quarter gross domestic product also weighed on shares.
