Major US stock indexes closed mostly lower on Wall Street, led by energy companies, but gains in the health care and technology sectors edged the Nasdaq composite to another all-time high, the AP reports. Oil and gas companies clocked losses as the prices of energy futures fell. Rig operator Transocean slumped 3% and Southwestern Energy fell 5%. Banks also declined. Wells Fargo fell 1.5%. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 76 points, or 0.4%, to 19,887. The Standard & Poor's 500 index lost 8 points, or 0.4%, to 2,268. The Nasdaq edged up 10 points, or 0.2%, to 5,531.
