Stocks stabilize a day after huge sell-off

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are inching higher in early trading on Wall Street, a day after the biggest plunge of the year.

Investors were encouraged by two U.S. economic reports early Thursday, a slight decrease in applications for unemployment benefits and a narrower trade deficit.

The Dow Jones industrial average was up 36 points at 12,968 shortly after the opening bell.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index was up five at 1,399 and the Nasdaq composite was up 10 points at 2,947.

Monster Beverage fell 8 percent after the drink maker said its revenue growth slowed in the third quarter. The government is investigating reports of five deaths and a non-fatal heart attack in people who consumed the company's highly caffeinated Monster Energy Drink.

Dean Foods rose 6 percent after reporting higher earnings.
