(AP) The stock market fell the most in two weeks as the outlook for the economy grew dimmer.


The Dow Jones industrial average fell 138 points to close at 14,701 Wednesday. The Standard & Poor's 500 dropped 14 to 1,582. The Nasdaq lost 29 points to 3,299.


All three indexes fell 0.9 percent.


Small-company stocks fell more than the rest of the market. The Russell 2000 index sank 2.5 percent.


Stocks sagged following a slowdown in hiring and manufacturing last month. Big-name companies reported disappointing results.


Bond yields fell as investors sought safety. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 1.63 percent, its lowest of the year.


Three stocks fell for every one that rose on the New York Stock Exchange. Volume was below average at 3.4 billion shares.
