Some late-day buying brought retail stocks close to positive territory but wasn’t able to lift them to the breakeven point.
The S&P 500 Retailing Industry Group finished the day off 0.14 points, well under 0.1 percent, at 854.72 after falling as much as 1 percent earlier in the day. It paralleled the path of the Nasdaq, which landed at 4,074.40, down less than 0.1 percent, after dropping more than 1.5 percent in midday trading.
