US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Boeing, J&J pull down Wall Street along with weak China data

NEW YORK, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Wall Street fell on Friday as negative headlines about Johnson & Johnson and Boeing , along with bleak economic data from China, soured investor risk appetite and offset generally positive corporate earnings.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 255.07 points, or 0.94%, to 26,770.81, the S&P 500 lost 11.83 points, or 0.39%, to 2,986.12 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 67.31 points, or 0.83%, to 8,089.54. (Reporting by Stephen Culp; Editing by Sandra Maler)
