Stocks fall to conclude troubled month

NEW YORK — Disappointing news on consumer spending helped pull stocks lower Friday in a quiet end to the market’s worst month in more than a year.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index closed August with a loss of 3.1 percent while the Dow Jones industrial average lost 4.4 percent. Both had their biggest one-month drop since May, 2012.
