June 12 (Reuters) - Wall Street 's main indexes dipped on Wednesday over worries of a prolonged U .

Jim Awad, senior managing director at Clearstead Advisors in New York, said business between the US and China was not going to be what it was two months ago.

"They're going to tighten the screws, and we're going to tighten the screws," he said.

"The market is attempting to reset US profit growth expectations in light of that."

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 100.72 points yesterday, or 0.39 per cent, to 25,776.61, the S&P 500 lost 8.09 points, or 0.28 per cent, to 2856.27 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 34.88 points, or 0.45 per cent, to 7750.84.

Lowe's shares dived 11.8 per cent after the home improvement chain cut its full-year profit forecast.

Another retailer, Nordstrom, also reduced its sales and profit forecasts. Nordstrom shares dropped 9.2 per cent.

However, shares of Target jumped 7.8 per cent, the most among S&P 500 companies, after the retailer's quarterly same-store sales and profit beat estimates.

The release of minutes from the Federal Reserve's latest policy meeting, in which officials agreed that their patient approach to setting monetary policy could remain in place "for some time", had little impact on Wall Street's major indexes.

Declining issues outnumbered advancing ones on the NYSE by a 1.71-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.94-to-1 ratio favoured decliners.

The S&P 500 posted 28 new 52-week highs and eight new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 43 new highs and 121 new lows.

Volume on US exchanges was 6.00 billion shares, compared to the 6.94 billion average for the full session over the last 20 trading days.
