U.S. stocks fell amid disappointing earnings and the 10-year Treasury yield held near 3.1 percent as global markets continue to grapple with the outlook for the world's largest economy. Brent crude punched through $80 a barrel. The S&P 500 Index retreated as results from Cisco Systems Inc. weighed on technology shares and Walmart Inc. dragged on consumer stocks. The dollar added to its highest levels of the year after data on manufacturing and employment showed economic strength.
