NEW YORK (AP) - Most stocks were lower in Thursday trading after a number of economic reports provided no reason for encouragement on the outlook.
Railroad Norfolk Southern warned that it's shipping fewer goods, and the Labor Department's weekly jobless claims indicated the job market remained weak.
Despite the negative trend, the Dow gained 19 points to 13,597. The S&P 500 slipped nearly a point, while the Nasdaq declined nearly 7 points.
