The Dow Jones Industrial Average shed 25.35 points Monday to finish at 12,741.82 while the Nasdaq and S&P 500 added 22.53 points and 1.94 points, respectively.

In economic news, the National Association of Home Builders said homebuilder sentiment improved to a 29 score in June, its highest level of optimism in five years. But the index still checked in well below the coveted 50 rating (last recorded in April 2006), a sign that most builders still have an unfavorable overall view of the housing market.
