US STOCKS SNAPSHOT - Wall St opens lower as "cliff" concerns weigh
NEW YORK Nov 13 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks dipped at the open on Tuesday, hobbled by "fiscal cliff" concerns as an upcoming debate in Congress over solving the nation's budget problems kept investors from making aggressive bets.
The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 65.58 points, or 0.51 percent, to 12,749.50. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index lost 7.92 points, or 0.57 percent, to 1,372.11. The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 26.35 points, or 0.91 percent, to 2,877.91.
