Wall Street shares have been flat on open, as rises in energy stocks due to rising crude oil prices were offset by losses in technology shares.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average is now just 27.3 points or 0.1% lower to 25,030.80. Top of the losers is consumer product manufacturer 3M, which has fallen 1% to $200.06 ahead of its second quarter earnings results announcement tomorrow.
The S&P 500 has nudged down 3.2 points or 0.1% to 2,798.20. The losers are led by oil field service firm Halliburton, which just announced strong second quarter profits as rising oil prices boosted drilling in West Texas, Mexico and the Middle East.
And finally, the tech-heavy Nasdaq has slipped 37 points or 0.5% to 7,783.87. Elon Musk's electric car company Tesla heads the losers, dropping 5.4% to $296.52 following news reports over the weekend that Tesla asked some suppliers for refunds to help it reach profitability in a memo.
There was also a report from Needham & Co analyst Rajvindra Gill saying that 24% of Tesla Model 3 orders have been cancelled.
Tesla disputes the analyst report, but has not responded to comment over the memo, which was first seen by the Wall Street Journal.
