NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are getting off to a mixed start on the first full week of trading of the year.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell a point at 16,467 in the first few minutes of trading Monday.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index was flat at 1,831. The Nasdaq composite was down 12 points, or 0.3 percent, at 4,119.

Several stocks were moving on deal news.

Jos. A. Bank Clothiers rose 4 percent after Men's Wearhouse said it was making a hostile takeover bid for the company.
