Stocks slid further on Wednesday, sending the Nasdaq Composite index down 1 percent, as disappointment with technology profits from bellwethers such as Intel Corp soured investors' mood, a day after the Dow crossed 14,000 for the first time.

The Dow Jones industrial average was down 91.21 points, or 0.65 percent, at 13,880.34. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index was down 11.07 points, or 0.71 percent, at 1,538.30. The Nasdaq Composite Index was down 27.08 points, or 1.00 percent, at 2,685.21.
