Markets Slightly Up At Opening
Stocks are trying to inch up at opening today, following good news/bad news earnings news.
Yesterday, Apple easily bested Wall Street expectations. But this morning, UPS -- the world's largest shipper -- missed expectations.
In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is up 13 points, or essentially flat.
The broader S&P 500 and the tech-heavy Nasdaq are both up about half of 1 percent.
On the Hill right now, Neil Barofsky, Treasury's inspector general -- the in-house watchdog on the bailout -- is testifying before the joint economic committee.
You can watch the hearing here on C-Span.
And you can read Barofsky's first report to Congress here.
