Stocks finished the day down slightly, with the S&P 500 posting a htree-day losing streak, as a brief rebound in tech stocks failed to float markets back to the green.

Snap in particular got a much needed boost, gaining more than 9% after Barclays said the stock was at a "turning point" and could reach $18. Still, Credit Suisse says the brief tech lull could be a great time to buy the sector.

Here's the scoreboard:
  • S&P 500: 2,631.06 (-0.32%)
  • Dow: 24,182.00 (-0.44%)
  • Nasdaq: 6,767.46 (-0.12%)
