Stock prices are ending little changed as investors sorted through some mixed results from big U.S. retailers.

Wal-Mart Stores rose 3.5 percent and Home Depot gained 4.4 percent Tuesday after turning in earnings that were better than expected.

Urban Outfitters dropped 3.8 percent after its revenue fell short.

Investors have been worried that sales could be weak this holiday shopping season.

The Dow Jones industrial average edged up six points to 17,489.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index slid two points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,050. The Nasdaq composite rose a point to 4,986.

Energy stocks lagged the market as the price of oil fell. U.S. crude dropped 3 percent to $41 a barrel.

Bond prices barely budged. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note held steady at 2.27 percent.
