NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks prices are little changed in early trading on Wall Street after a record-setting week for the market.

The Dow Jones industrial average was down 14 points at 14,960 points shortly after the opening bell Monday, a decline of 0.1 percent.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index was up two points at 1,616, or 0.1 percent. The Nasdaq composite was up nine at 3,387 points, or 0.2 percent.

Few companies were reporting earnings Monday. Tyson Foods, the nation's largest meat company, fell 4 percent, or 94 cents, to $24. Tyson's income dropped 42 percent as chicken feed costs rose and profits fell in its beef business.

The market closed at a record high Friday after the government reported a sharp pickup in hiring last month.
