Wall Street dips amid lack of fresh incentives
February 7, 2013 1:42 AM EST
U.S. stocks opened lower on Wednesday as investors found few fresh trading incentives to keep pushing equities higher following a 1-percent rally in the previous session that lifted the S&P 500 to five-year highs.
The Dow Jones industrial average <.DJI> was down 43.12 points, or 0.31 percent, at 13,936.18. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index <.SPX> was down 4.41 points, or 0.29 percent, at 1,506.88. The Nasdaq Composite Index <.IXIC> was down 11.43 points, or 0.36 percent, at 3,160.15.
