Summary Box: Stocks end lower on shaky Greece talk

GREECE, REVISTED: Stocks fell Tuesday on concerns that a deal to prevent a default by Greece might fall through. A slew of U.S. corporate earnings did little to bolster investors' confidence.

THE NUMBERS: The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 33 points at 12,676. It has risen or fallen less than 100 points in 13 trading sessions, the longest calm stretch since March and April of last year.

MOSTLY GREEN: It's only the third time the S&P has ended lower this year, and all those declines have been less than 7 points. So far this year, it's up 4.5 percent.
