Jan 27 (Reuters) - Apple and Boeing's disappointing forecasts dragged down U.S. stock indexes on Wednesday, as anxious investors awaited the Federal Reserve's statement on monetary policy.

Apple's shares were down 5.3 percent at $94.67 after the company also reported its slowest-ever rise in iPhone shipments on Tuesday. The stock was the biggest drag on the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq, and was set for its biggest fall since August.

Boeing sank 9.5 percent to $115.90, its biggest single-day fall since October 2001, and was the biggest negative influence on the Dow.

Apple and Boeing combined accounted for 105 points of the Dow's near 120-point decline.   Continuación...
