The Standard & Poor's 500 index edged down less than a point to 1,862 as of noon Eastern time. The index rose for the previous three days in a row.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 22 points, or 0.1 percent, to 16,402. The Nasdaq composite was flat at 4,086.

Morgan Stanley rose after reporting better results than analysts had forecast.
