Stocks mixed following home price report
Stocks are mixed this morning following a report showing October home prices were flat compared with September.
In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is up one-quarter of 1 percent.
The broader S&P 500 is up 0.15 percent and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is flat.
Home prices in most of the 20 biggest U.S. markets were essentially flat in October compared with September, according to the S&P/Case-Shiller data out this morning, which is seen as not-great/not-bad news by the markets.
A measure of December consumer confidence is scheduled to be released at 10 a.m. today, and forecasters expect that it ticked upward from November.
