Stock markets held steady Monday after gains in technology firms offset major losses in airlines following Warren Buffett's announcement Saturday that he is dumping all his airline shares. Netflix was up by 3.1% and Microsoft rose 2.45%, while Amazon, Apple, and Facebook saw smaller gains, CNBC reports. Airlines Delta, United, Southwest, and American, meanwhile, all lost 5% or more. The S&P 500 rose 12.03 points to 2,842.74. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 26.07 to 23,749.76, and the Nasdaq gained 105.77 to 8,710.71, the AP reports. (Read more Dow Jones stories.)
