(Reuters) – U.S. stocks opened little changed on Thursday as a report that a meeting between President Donald Trump and China’s Xi Jinping will most likely be pushed to April at the earliest, clouded investor sentiment and offset a boost from Apple’s shares.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 10.58 points, or 0.04 percent, at the open to 25,692.31. The S&P 500 opened lower by 0.54 points, or 0.02 percent, at 2,810.38. The Nasdaq Composite gained 1.38 points, or 0.02 percent, to 7,644.79 at the opening bell.
