The broader Standard & Poor's 500 index was little changed at 1,675.

The Dow and S&P closed at all-time highs the day before.

The Nasdaq composite edged up three points to 3,581.

UPS sank 5 percent to $87.23 after the package delivery company cut its forecast for second-quarter earnings as its customers choose cheaper shipping options.
