Markets Up Slightly At Opening

Wall Street looks to put yesterday's losses behind it, opening up slightly this morning.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is up about 40 points, or less than half of 1 percent.

The broader S&P 500 is up a little less than half of 1 percent, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq is up a little more than half of 1 percent.

Wall Street seems to be shrugging off worse-than-expected new jobless-claim numbers out this morning.
