Earnings Push Stocks Down at Opening
Wall Street opened down this morning, pushed south by larger-than-expected earnings from Bank of America and so-so earnings from General Electric.
In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is down 78 points, or nearly eight-tenths of 1 percent, 16 points under 10,000.
The broader S&P 500 is down eight-tenths of 1 percent and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is down six-tenths of 1 percent.
Halliburton saw third-quarter profit drop but still beat expectations. Toymaker Mattel hit expectations with lower earnings.
