US blue chips climb at open
(10 mins ago)

An unexpected chief executive resignation at DuPont lifted the Dow in opening trade today as the S&P 500 and Nasdaq edged lower.
Five minutes into trade, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 16,796.40, up 19.97 points (0.12 percent).
The broad-based S&P 500 slipped by 1.64 (0.08 percent) to 1,985.41, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index lost 6.87 (0.14 percent) at 4,774.39.
DuPont jumped 10.6 percent higher after the chemical company announced late Monday that chief executive Ellen Kuhlman would retire this month.—AFP
