Updated from 4:23 p.m. EDTStocks in New York struggled Monday and ended little changed as traders turned cautious at the start of the first busy week on the earnings front. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 22.28 points, or 0.16%, at 14,043.73, and the S&P 500 lost 5.01 points, or 0.32%, at 1552.58. The Nasdaq Composite tacked on 7.05 points, or 0.25%, to 2787.37, with strength provided by Google ( GOOG), which topped the $600 level for the first time. Of the Dow's 30 components, Hewlett-Packard ( HPQ) was the best performer, climbing 2.2%. On the other hand, ExxonMobil ( XOM) was one of the worst, falling 0.7% as oil prices plummeted $2.20 to $79.02 a barrel. "This was a small pullback when compared to the move last week," said Edgar Peters, chief market strategist with Pan Agora. "We had a little bad news, and investors took profits. There wasn't much to move the market, so the decline in oil had a lot of oil companies dropping off and that hurt." Breadth was poor. On the New York Stock Exchange 2.03 billion shares changed hands, as decliners topped advancers by a 2-to-1 margin. Volume on the Nasdaq reached 1.51 billion shares, with losers outpacing winners nearly 3 to 2. Last time out, a stronger-than-expected September jobs report helped the major averages close the week with gains.
