Mixed day on Wall Street

June 9, 2009 1:12:41 PM PDT
Stocks are ending a quiet day mixed, with commodity and technology stocks showing the biggest gains. Investors have shrugged off news Tuesday that 10 of the nation's largest banks can repay $68 billion in bailout money.

Texas Instruments Inc. boosted tech stocks after raising its profit forecast. And a falling dollar pushed the price of oil to its first finish over $70 a barrel since November and drove prices of metals like copper and aluminum higher.

According to preliminary calculations, the Dow is down 1 at 8,763. The Standard & Poor's 500 index is up 3 at 942. The Nasdaq is up 17 at 1,860.

Three stocks rose for every two that fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume came to a relatively low 1.1 billion shares.
