Goldman shares slipped 3.2% after the bank reported first-quarter profit tumbled, hit by quiet trading and underwriting. Citigroup shares bounced higher premarket, then fell 0.1% after the opening bell, weighed down by a worse-than-expected slide in revenue.
Stocks began the day higher and then lost ground heading into the afternoon, with most of the S&P 500’s sectors trading lower for the day.
Energy shares in the S&P 500 fell 0.3% as U.S. crude oil retreated, pressured by indications that Russia could boost output in an attempt to regain some share of the global oil market.
