U.S. Stocks Reverse Gain as Apple, Google Lead Tech Shares Lower

April 16, 2012

U.S. stocks reversed early gains as Apple Inc. (AAPL:US) and Google Inc. (GOOG:US) led a retreat in technology shares that tempered an advance triggered by stronger-than-forecast growth in retail sales.

Apple fell for a fifth straight day, losing 3 percent, and Google slumped 2.8 percent.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index was little changed at 1,370.26 after climbing as much as 0.7 percent earlier.
