Stocks are little changed after record week


NEW YORK (AP) — Stock indexes are little changed on Wall Street following a record-setting week for the market.

The Dow Jones industrial average was down 20 points at 14,953 points at noon Eastern Daylight Time Monday, a decline of 0.1 percent.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 rose one point to 1,616. The Nasdaq composite edged up seven points to 3,384, an increase of 0.2 percent.

Tyson Foods, the nation’s largest meat-processing company, fell 4 percent after reporting that its income dropped as chicken feed costs rose and profits fell in its beef business.

The Dow rose above 15,000 for the first time, while the S&P 500 closed above 1,600, another first.
