NEW YORK (AP) " The latest on developments in U.S. financial markets:

4:00 p.m.

The stock market gave up an early gain and wobbled to a slightly lower close after the FBI said it found additional emails that were linked to Hillary Clinton.

The disclosure came at about 1 p.m. Eastern Time Friday and added a new note of uncertainty shortly before the presidential election.

Stocks had been higher after the government said the economy grew at a faster pace in the third quarter.

Health care companies lagged the market. Prescription drug distributor McKesson plunged after issuing weak results.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 8 points, less than 0.1 percent, to 18,161. The Standard & Poor's 500 index lost 6 points, or 0.3 percent, to 2,126. The Nasdaq composite declined 25 points, or 0.5 percent, to 5,190.
