The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose less than a point to close at 1,685 Tuesday.


The Dow Jones industrial average slipped a point to close at 15,520.


Technology stocks did better than the rest of the market. The Nasdaq composite rose 17 points, half a percent, to 3,616.


Goodyear Tire & Rubber jumped 9 percent to $18.56 after its earnings more than doubled. Pitney Bowes and Eastman Chemical also rose after reporting higher earnings.
