Stocks ended lower Thursday, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite pulling back from record finishes posted a day earlier. Analysts said concerns over the spread of COVID-19 in China and neighboring countries appeared to be a factor in market weakness, but said there was no clear, single catalyst for the decline.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 388 points at its session low but ended the day off around 129 points, or 0.4%, near 29,219, according to preliminary figures. The S&P 500 fell around 13 points, or 0.4%, to close near 3,373, while the Nasdaq Composite lost around 66 points, or 0.7%, finishing near 9,751.
