The S&P and Nasdaq dipped on Tuesday after Citigroup's quarterly results missed estimates and Apple's Chief Executive Steve Jobs took another medical leave.
The market's reaction to Steve Jobs' surprise medical leave from Apple today will underscore the importance of the tech sector on the S&P 500 ... What happens next to Apple will therefore dominate what happens in the sector and the S&P as well, said Bryan McCormick, analyst at optionMonster.com.
The Dow Jones industrial average <.DJI> added 28.23 points, or 0.24 percent, at 11,815.61. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index <.SPX> was down 0.16 point, or 0.01 percent, at 1,293.08. The Nasdaq Composite Index <.IXIC> was up 1.06 points, or 0.04 percent, at 2,756.36.
