Dick’s Sporting Goods plunged 17 percent after its earnings and revenue fell short of what investors were expecting. The company also cut its full-year profit forecast.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 35 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,476 in midday trading today.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index lost two points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,882. The Nasdaq composite lost a point to 4,124.

Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note edged down to 2.53 percent.
