(Newser) – US stock indexes found their footing after a sharp early loss and managed a mixed finish, the AP reports. Technology companies sank for the third day in a row Monday. Adobe lost 3.2%. Financial companies did well. Chubb rose 1.3%. Arconic jumped 7% following a Reuters report that a group of private equity firms wanted to make a bid for the company. Stocks got off to a weak start following some big declines late last week. European markets dropped as Italy said it would ramp spending. The Standard & Poor's 500 index slipped 1 point to 2,884. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 39 points, or 0.2%, to 26,486. The Nasdaq composite fell 52 points, or 0.7%, to 7,735. (Read more stock market stories.)
