NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are closing mixed on Wall Street after a quiet day of trading.

The Dow Jones industrial average slipped five points, or 0.04 percent, to 15,419 Monday. It's the lowest level for the Dow in a month.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index lost two points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,689. The S&P is coming off its worst week since June following uninspiring corporate earnings news.

The Nasdaq composite rose nine points, or 0.3 percent, to 3,669.

Technology stocks were a bright spot. Apple rose after a report said an updated iPhone would be announced next month. BlackBerry jumped after saying it would consider putting itself up for sale.

More stocks rose than fell on the New York Stock Exchange. Trading volume was light at 2.8 billion shares.
