Wall Street at Close report | MarketWatch -October 11, 2012-: Stocks near flat; S&P barely up first day in five .

By Kate Gibson NEW YORK (MarketWatch) - U.S. stock indexes closed largely unchanged on Thursday as cheer about a decline in jobless claims dissipated.

By Kate Gibson , MarketWatch  NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — U.S. stocks on Monday retreated from near five-year highs as investors braced for what’s expected to be a weak earnings season.   “We’ve probably managed to set the bar low enough that we can get over the top of it,” Bill Stone, chief investment strategist at PNC Asset Management Group, said of lowered estimates for coming results, which could have American corporations breaking an 11-quarter streak of year-over-year gains in earnings.  Halting a three-session win streak, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA -0.19%  fell 26.50 points, or 0.2%, to 13,583.65.  Are Alcoa’s results a barometer?
