U.S. stocks drifted lower in thin trading Monday, pulling the Standard & Poor's 500 index back from a five-year high.
The broad-market index edged up slightly last week, enough to put it at its highest level since November 2007. With little in the way of market-moving news Monday, seven of the 10 industry groups within the S&P 500 edged down.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 21.73 points, or 0.2 percent, to 13,971.24.
The S&P 500 dipped 0.92, less than 0.1 percent, to 1,517.01.
The Nasdaq composite slipped 1.87, less than 0.1 percent, to 3,192.00.
For the year:
The Dow is up 867.10 points, or 6.6 percent.
The S&P 500 is up 90.82 points, or 6.4 percent.
The Nasdaq is up 172.49 points, or 5.7 percent.
