(Newser) – The eighth birthday of the current bull market ended on Wall Street without much of a celebration, the AP reports. Stock indexes ended barely changed Thursday, eight years to the day since the market bottomed out in the depths of the financial crisis. Industrial companies fell as heavy machinery maker Caterpillar continued to slide. Real estate companies also slid. Health care companies rose and banks gained along with bond yields. Wells Fargo rose almost 1%. The Standard & Poor's 500 index edged up 1 point to 2,364. The Dow Jones industrial average was little changed at 20,858. The Nasdaq composite edged up a point to 5,838.
