NEW YORK, Oct 13 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks slipped on Thursday, led by declines in financial shares and following weak Chinese economic data, but a late-day rebound in oil prices limited the day's decline.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 44.85 points, or 0.25 percent, to 18,099.35, the S&P 500 lost 6.59 points, or 0.31 percent, to 2,132.59 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 25.69 points, or 0.49 percent, to 5,213.33. (Reporting by Chuck Mikolajczak; Editing by Nick Zieminski)
