imageNEW YORK: US stocks opened mixed Friday after the Commerce Department's first quarter growth estimate came in at a modest 2.5 percent, a rebound from the previous quarter but slower than expected.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 9.63 points (0.07 percent) to 14,710.43 in the first five minutes of trade.

The broad-based S&P 500 fell 1.69 (0.11 percent) to 1,583.47, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index lost 7.60 (0.23 percent) to 3,282.39.

"The sustained strength in the housing market, the pickup in consumer spending and the further advance in business capital spending... suggest the economy has some underlying strength," said economist Sal Guatieri of BMO Capital Markets.
