U.S. Stocks Erase Gains as Apple’s Drop Overshadows Jobs Growth

December 07, 2012

U.S. stocks erased early gains as a bigger-than-forecast drop in consumer confidence and slide in Apple Inc. shares wiped out an advance triggered by faster-than- estimated growth in jobs.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index was little changed at 1,413.02 at 10:34 a.m. in New York after earlier gaining as much as 0.5 percent. Apple, the biggest company by market value, lost 1.9 percent.
