On the downside

Third quarter earnings and revenue for Dolby Laboratories (NYSE: DLB) slipped as prices for its 3-D equipment fell.

WMS Industries (NYSE: WMS) disappointed with sharply lower fourth quarter earnings that fell far short of expectations.

In the broad market, declining issues outpaced advancers by a margin of more than 3 to 2 on the NYSE and by more than 5 to 4 on Nasdaq. The Russell 2000 which tracks small cap stocks eased a fraction to 725.
