Major Indexes Sink Lower

Hemera/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Wall Street slipped lower Thursday, despite news that fewer Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week.
 
The Dow dropped 42.47 points to close at 13,944.05. The Nasdaq and the S&P both gave up three points.
 
The major averages are on pace for their first losing week of the year, after logging the best January in decades.
 
First-time jobless claims dropped by 5,000 last week. The Labor Department says that indicates companies are still hiring at a modest but steady pace.
