NEW YORK (AP) - Stock indexes are little changed in early trading on Wall Street following mixed earnings results from Apple, Ford, Boeing and other major U.S. companies.
Earnings will continue to roll out this week.
Online game maker Zynga reports after the closing bell. For the remainder of the week, earnings are expected from Dow Chemical, Southwest Airlines, UPS, Exxon Mobil and Burger King.
Orders for long-lasting U.S. factory goods fell sharply last month, dragged lower by a steep drop in volatile commercial aircraft demand. But orders that reflect business investment plans rose slightly.
The Commerce Department says orders for durable goods declined 5.7 percent in March, after a 4.3 percent gain the previous month. February's figure was revised lower. Durable goods are items expected to last at least three years. Orders fluctuate sharply from month to month.
