Stocks are mixed at opening, following encouraging news on housing prices.
In the first 20 minutes of trading, the Dow is up about one-tenth of 1 percent.
The broader S&P 500 is just below water and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is down two-tenths of 1 percent.
The Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller home price index rose 0.3 percent in December, the seventh straight month of rises, indicating a modest recovery in the housing market. Only five of the 20 cities in the index showed a housing price decline from November to December.
