The drugmkaer made progress in its cost-cutting plans designed to deliver annual cost savings of more than $130 million dollars by mid-2018. Apple Inc. (AAPL) again drove Dow direction as the tech sector weighed on broader markets. Tech stocks have been susceptible to selloffs in recent months after a strong run-up at the beginning of the year.
