US stocks finished lower Tuesday as losses for health care and technology companies canceled out gains for banks, per the AP. Investors didn't commit to many big moves as trading resumed after the Labor Day holiday. They are likely to focus on trade this week, as the US is scheduled to resume trade talks with Canada on Wednesday and could announce new tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese imports later in the week. The S&P 500 index gave up 4.80 points to 2,896.72, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dipped 12.34 points to 25,952.48, and the Nasdaq composite fell 18.29 points to 8,091.25. The Russell 2000 index lost 7.38 points to 1,733.38. (Amazon had a milestone day.)
