Stocks End Lower

Monday, March 25, 2013 4:44 PM
Stocks slipped in trading on Monday, with all three major indexes finishing the day in red, as initial enthusiasm over Cyprus’s last-minute bailout deal faded. The Dow Jones ended the day 0.44% lower at 14,447.75, the S&P 500 ended the day 0.33% lower at 1,551.69, and the Nasdaq ended the day 0.30% lower at 3,235.30. All sectors in the S&P 500 ended the day in red. Basic Materials sector led the losses in the S&P 500, ending the day 0.83% lower. Conglomerates also fell sharply, ending the day 0.82% lower. Industrials fell 0.73%, while Transportation sector fell 0.67% lower. Apollo Group Inc. (NASDAQ: APOL) shares rallied in trading on Monday after the company’s second-quarter earnings beat consensus forecast. The stock ended the day 7.10% higher at $18.25. Dollar General Corp. (NYSE: DG) shares also edged higher after the company reported better than expected quarterly profit. The stock rose to an intra-day high of $52.91 before paring some of the gains to finish the day 2.02% higher at $51.08. Other major movers on Monday included Dell Inc. (NASDAQ: DELL), which ended the day 2.62% higher at $14.51, Vanguard Health Systems Inc. (NYSE: VHS), which ended the day 6.44% lower at $15.55, and Veeco Instruments Inc. (NASDAQ: VECO), which ended the day 8.50% higher at $37.93.
