U.S. stock indexes retreating from record heights early Wednesday

U

U.S. stocks opened slightly lower on Wednesday, as investors found few catalysts to keep pushing shares higher with major indexes near record levels.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.06% fell 14 points, or 0.1%, to 22,099.
The S&P 500 SPX, -0.05% slipped 3 points to 2,493, a decline of 0.1%.
The Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -0.11% was off 15 points, or 0.2%, to 6,439.
Major indexes have been in an uptrend this week, with both the S&P and the Nasdaq coming off two-day rallies, while the Dow has risen for three straight sessions.
Those gains took equities to record levels, leading to some mild profit taking.
Among specific names, Apple Inc.
AAPL, -1.08% dipped 1% a day after it unveiled its new product lineup, including a flagship iPhone X that won’t be delivered until November.
Nordstrom Inc.
JWN, +6.48% surged 5.4% a day after a report the retailer was taking steps to go private.
