Activision Blizzard plunged 9% after announcing that its partnership with video game developer Bungie was ending. The S&P 500 slipped less than 1 point to 2,596. The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 5 points to 23,995. The Nasdaq fell 14 points, or 0.2%, to 6,971. Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury fell to 2.70%.
