A Quiet Monday on Wall Street


U.S. financial markets finished Monday’s trading on a tepid note as Wall Street looked toward Houston, and the potential impact of flooding on various publicly traded companies.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average inched downward by 5.27 points, to 21,808.40. The Nasdaq composite was up 17.37, to 6283.02, while the S&P 500 was up 1.19 to 2444.24.

Key movers among media companies were Saga Communications, which gained 10 cents, to $40.70.

Also moving up: Townsquare Media, which improved by 15 cents, to end at $10.08.

It wasn’t such a good day for iHeartMedia. The nation’s No. 1 broadcasters, which has a large station group in Houston, saw the “stub” of its publicly traded shares dip by 8 cents to $1.37.
