(AP) The stock market is ending lower after Macy's disappointed investors with a weak quarterly profit, casting doubt about how willing shoppers are to spend and support the U.S. economy.


The Dow Jones industrial average fell 113 points, or 0.7 percent, to close at 15,337 on Wednesday.


The Standard & Poor's 500 index was down eight points, or 0.5 percent, at 1,685. The Nasdaq was down 15 points, or 0.4 percent, at 3,669.


Macy's ended down $2.17, or 4 percent, to $46.33, the third-biggest decliner in the S&P 500.


Apple rose above $500 for the first time since January, climbing as much as $14.68, or 3 percent, to $504.25


Two stocks fell for every one that rose on the New York Stock Exchange. Trading was light at 2.8 billion shares.
