(Newser) – Stocks are ending nearly flat on Wall Street as the market continues the small moves it's made in the last few weeks, the AP reports. The Dow Jones industrial average dipped 3 points to 18,352. The Standard & Poor's 500 index was nearly unchanged at 2,164. The Nasdaq composite rose 7 points, or 0.1%, to 5,166. Container makers were some of the day's biggest gainers, and metal packaging maker Ball Corp. rose 12%. Bank stocks fell. Callaway Golf jumped nearly 4% after sporting goods giant Nike surprised Wall Street by saying it will stop making golf equipment like clubs, golf balls, and bags.
