Small-company stocks fared better. The S&P 500 edged down 2 points, or 0.1%, to 2,798. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 14 points, or 0.1%, to 25,516. The Nasdaq slipped 5 points, or 0.1%, to 7,637. Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.41%. (Read more stock market stories.)
