Stocks seek direction at opening

Stocks are seeking direction at opening this morning, on the last trading day before the weekend when lawmakers hope to resolve the health-care reform legislation.

In the first 20 minutes of trading, the Dow is essentially flat.

The broader S&P 500 is flat and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is down one-tenth of 1 percent.

Democrats are pushing toward a Sunday vote on health care, which will create winners and losers among stocks trading on Wall Street.
