(Newser) – US stocks are closing more or less where they started after a day of wavering between small gains and losses, the AP reports. Retailers gained ground Monday, but banks and health care companies fell. BlackRock fell 3.1% after a disappointing second-quarter report. Gold and copper producer Freeport-McMoRan rose 3.3%. Industrial companies took small losses. Stock indexes closed at record highs Friday. Monday, the Standard & Poor's 500 index was little changed at 2,459. The Dow Jones industrial average slipped 6 points to 21,631. The Nasdaq composite edged up 2 points to 6,314. More stocks rose than fell on the New York Stock Exchange.
