Major U.S. stock-indexes fell on Wednesday as investors assessed earnings from major U.S. banks and health care stocks bounced back. Fresh economic data from China, however, appeared to limit gains - consumer inflation in the world's second-biggest economy cooled more than expected in September. While the health of China's economy continues to remain a concern, investors are focusing on company results.
