NEW YORK — Stocks mostly fell in a lackluster session Monday, although key market measures escaped with only slight losses.
The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials finished unchanged at 1,266.56 after edging up less than a point last week.
Volume on the New York Stock Exchange totaled 79.93 million shares, compared to 81.11 million on Friday.
Computer and other technology issues were again heavy casualties. Aerospace, paper and mining stocks also fell, while energy-service stocks advanced.
Digital Equipment tumbled 4 to 100 in heavy trading after posting a 10% drop in fiscal third-quarter profit.
Computer Issues Sink
Digital and other minicomputer makers already were under pressure, however, following Wang Laboratories' report Friday that its fiscal third-quarter earnings plummeted 66% from a year earlier.
Wang's class B stock dropped 2 to 16 1/2 on the American Stock Exchange. Among other Big Board-listed computer makers, Data General fell 1 1/2 to 41 3/8 and Prime Computer lost 7/8 to 16 1/8. IBM edged up 1/8 to 127 3/4.
