Stocks closing broadly lower on Wall Street, more than erasing a gain from the day before, the AP reports. Health care companies led the retreat for US stocks Tuesday. Materials and technology companies also fell. Alcoa slumped 11% after its results fell short of Wall Street's expectations, while genetics research company Illumina dropped 25% after announcing revenue that fell short of analysts' forecasts. Apple rose after rival Samsung announced it was discontinuing its Galaxy Note 7 phone. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 200 points, or 1.1%, to 18,128.
