    Stocks fluctuated between small gains and losses on Wall Street for most of Monday. Small-company stocks are doing well because they are less exposed to recession-plagued Europe than the large international stocks that make up the Dow and the S&P 500 index.

  • Stocks rise as Dow holds above 15,000

  • Dow just misses 13000. Again.

    The Dow lost 1 point to close at 12981 – 19 points shy of the 13000 mark. The index hit 13000 several times last week but so far hasn't been able to hold onto it.
