President Obama urged both political parties to take steps to cut the budget deficit through a combination of tax increases for the wealthy and spending cuts, but investors remained concerned about whether an agreement can be reached and the Dow fell to its lowest since June.
Starbucks is continuing efforts to expand beyond coffee. It agreed to buy Teavana, which has about 300 stores and more than 100 kinds of tea. Starbucks already owns the Tazo tea brand.
