S&P 500, Nasdaq Retreat From Records as Nvidia Pulls Back | Wall Street Today
The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq retreated from record highs as Nvidia shares pulled back, accelerating declines for the semiconductor industry.

Nvidia's 3.5% decline on Thursday shaved more than $200 billion off the company's market capital, forcing the chipmaker to give back the crown for the most valuable company to $Microsoft(MSFT.US)$. The stock market declined amid weak economic data. Weekly jobless claims rose more than expected, while builders are starting home construction at a slower place, providing little relief to high housing prices that are adding upward pressure to inflation.
The $S&P 500 Index(.SPX.US)$ fell 0.25% to 5473.17 on Thursday, while $Nasdaq Composite Index(.IXIC.US)$ declined 0.79% to 17721.59. The $Dow Jones Industrial Average(.DJI.US)$ bucked the downtrend, closing 0.77% higher at 39134.76.
