Boeing's Woes Drag Down Dow

A rebound in Apple shares helped buoy stocks, though weakness in Boeing put the Dow Jones Industrial Average on track for its first fall in six days.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 40 points, or 0.3%, to 13496, in late Wednesday afternoon trading. The Standard & Poor's 500-stock index slipped one point, or less than 0.1%, to 1472, while the Nasdaq Composite Index added eight points, or 0.3%, to 3119.

Leading gains were tech companies, as Apple bounced back after a two-day drop that shaved 6.6% off the tech company's market value and sent shares below $500 for the first time in about a year.
