(Close): US stocks ended barely changed on Wednesday, with investors mostly shrugging off the minutes from the latest meeting of the US Federal Reserve.

The S&P 500 slipped 3.08 points to 2,048.72.

The Dow Jones shed 2.09 points to 17,685.73, while the Nasdaq fell 26.73 points to 4,675.71.

Shares in Target rose 7.4% after the retailer's third-quarter results beat expectations.

Net income for the quarter rose to $352m from $341m a year earlier, helped by a 1.2% increase in underlying sales in the US.

The minutes from the Fed's October policy meeting showed that while the central bank was concerned about turmoil in markets and the deteriorating situation abroad, it still felt comfortable with the pace of the US recovery to finally end its bond-buying stimulus programme.

The day's biggest losers were technology stocks.

Shares in electric car maker Tesla fell 3.86% after a warning from Morgan Stanley analysts about the timeline of the company's release of its Model X sport-utility vehicle.

Internet streaming service Netflix also saw its shares take a hit, dropping 4.71% after the company said it would no longer offer a Bill Cosby programme due to allegations of rape and sexual abuse against the comedian.
