    Declining stocks outnumbered advancing ones on the NYSE exchange by 2659 to 657 and 130 closed unchanged. In the NASDAQ, 1074 issues advanced, 3695 issues declined, and 240 issues unchanged.

    All 11 major S&P 500 sector indexes closed down, with bottom performing issues were communication services (down 2.4%), information technology (down 1.73%), materials (down 1.68%), and financials (down 1.54%).

    Shares of Tesla closed notably sharply higher after the electric car maker reported first quarter results that beat analyst estimates on both the top and bottom lines.

    Shares of American Airlines and United Airlines also held on to strong gains after reporting first quarter losses but forecasting a return to profitability in the current quarter.
