Losses by industrial and technology companies helped pull U.S. stocks mostly lower in late-afternoon trading Tuesday, placing the market on course for modest losses. The slide erased some of the gains from a broad rally earlier in the day that sent the Dow Jones industrial average past the 26,000-point threshold for the first time. Health care stocks were among the gainers as investors sized up the latest company earnings and deal news.
