US stocks close flat

US stocks closed near breakeven Tuesday, clawing back from losses after Hewlett-Packard reported a huge charge for an acquisition, offsetting fresh data signaling recovery in the housing market.

After a triple-digit gain Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 5.83 points (0.05 percent) at 12,790.13 in closing trade.

The S&P 500-stock index ticked up 1.01 (0.07 percent) to 1,387.90, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite added 0.83 (0.03 percent) at 2,916.90.
