(Close): US markets ended lower on Friday after retail sales figures came in as expected.

August retail sales rose 0.6% - in line with analysts' views - while July's number was revised up to show 0.3% growth, rather than the flat figure first estimated.

The Dow Jones fell 61.49 points to settle at 16,987.51, while the S&P 500 dipped 11.91 points to end at 1,985.54.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq shed 24.21 points to close at 4,567.60.

Shares in mobile phone carrier Sprint rose more than 6% after analysts at research firm Cowen upgraded their view of the firm, citing new management changes.

Technology firm Yahoo also saw a nearly 4% boost to its shares after reports emerged that Chinese internet giant Alibaba had seen strong demand for its shares.

The reports in US media suggested that Alibaba might close its books early to investors ahead of the firm's planned stock market debut next week.

Yahoo owns a significant stake of Alibaba, and stands to make a large sum if the firm raises an expected $24bn (£15bn), which would make it the largest US stock market debut in history.
