Stocks ended a jumpy day little changed as financials weighed on the S&P 500 and Nike  ( NKE) and Disney ( DIS) hoisted the Dow Jones Industrial Average higher for most of the day. Crude slumped to its lowest level in almost a week. Caterpillar ( CAT) was the best performer on the Dow after posting a smaller drop in sales over the three months to February. The heavy machinery maker reported a 1% decline, its smallest since the end of 2012. Movado ( MOV) jumped even after missing profit and sales estimates over its fourth quarter. Sales fell nearly 9%, while net income missed consensus by a penny. Full-year earnings guidance also came in on the weak side. Tiffany  ( TIF) rose after William Blair analysts upgraded their rating to OUTPERFORM from MARKET PERFORM. The firm said the retailer's business had stabilized.
