April 30 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks opened lower on Thursday as the disappointing economic growth hurt investors' sentiment for the second straight day, though new data showed jobless claims fell and consumer spending rose in March.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 56.35 points, or 0.31 percent, to 17,979.18, the S&P 500 lost 7.25 points, or 0.34 percent, to 2,099.6 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 26.14 points, or 0.52 percent, to 4,997.51.
