US: Wall St opens little changed, energy weighs


[NEW YORK] US stocks were little changed at the open on Wednesday as gains in defensive, high-yielding sectors were offset by declines in energy stocks.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 1.15 points, or 0.01 per cent, to 17,813.79, the S&P 500 gained 0.46 points, or 0.02 per cent, to 2,067.49 and the Nasdaq Composite added 0.64 points, or 0.01 per cent, to 4,758.90.

Indexes continued to be in a tight range going into the Thanksgiving holiday. Wall Street will be closed on Thursday and Friday will be a half-day session.
