The markets in review: April 2012

Weakening economic data and renewed anxiety about Europe brought equities' winning streak to an end in April. The small-cap Russell 2000 lagged its domestic peers, while the Nasdaq, which had been handily outperforming this year, had to battle a downdraft in Apple stock, one of the index's key components. The Dow managed to finish April basically flat, followed by the S&P 500, which couldn't quite manage to end the month above 1,400.
