By The Associated PressSeptember 16, 2019

On Monday:

The S&P 500 fell 9.43 points, or 0.3%, to 2,997.96.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average slid 142.70 points, or 0.5%, to 27,076.82.

The Nasdaq lost 23.17 points, or 0.3%, to 8,153.54.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller company stocks rose 6.46 points, or 0.4%, to 1,584.60.

For the year:

The S&P 500 is up 491.11 points, or 19.6%.

The Dow is up 3,749.36 points, or 16.1%.
