• Whole Foods Market slumped 10 percent. The grocery-store chain trimmed its forecasts for sales and earnings this year, a result of its plans to open more stores and put more lower-priced goods on its shelves. Whole Foods lost $9.38 to $87.52.

• General Motors fell 3 percent after the biggest U.S. carmaker said it made money in North America and Asia and nearly doubled last year’s fourth-quarter profit. But its earnings fell short of analysts’ estimates. GM’s stock dropped 75 cents to $27.92.
