Stocks edged lower on Wall Street, with energy companies logging some of the biggest losses as oil prices take another turn lower. The S&P 500 index was off less than 0.1% and the Nasdaq rose 0.2%. Benchmark U.S. crude oil was down 3.3% to just over $66 a barrel, following a decline of 7.7% last week. That helped pull energy companies lower. Occidental Petroleum lost 2.8%. Technology companies were also weighing down the broader market. Companies are still turning out their latest quarterly earnings reports. Tyson Foods climbed 8.5% after turning in a strong report card. Bond yields rose slightly.
