Stocks opened higher Monday, but have quickly turned mixed due to weakness in blue chips.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 0.2% with 23 of 30 issues lower. Caterpillar (CAT) was the Dow’s biggest point loser. The S&P 500 eased 0.1%. Meanwhile, Apple (AAPL) helped the Nasdaq to a 0.1% gain. Turnover was tracking higher across the board, especially on the Nasdaq.
Despite the market’s action, some leaders were up sharply.
