How the major stock indexes fared Wednesday

A few signs of growth in the U.S. economy weren't enough to halt a weeklong slide in the stock market Wednesday. A survey released by the Federal Reserve showed that the pace of recovery is uneven across the country. The report added to concerns that have been building since mid-April that the American economy is stalling.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 21.87, or 0.2 percent, to 12,048.94.

The Standard and Poor's 500 lost 5.38, or 0.4 percent, to 1,279.56.

The Nasdaq composite slipped 26.18, or 1 percent, to 2,675.38.

For the week:

The Dow is down 012.32, or 0.8 percent.

The S&P is down 20.60, or 1.6 percent.

The Nasdaq is down 57.40, or 2.1 percent.
