US stock indexes were set to open mixed on Tuesday after data showed a solid rise in producer prices last month, while General Electric surged on its plan to split into three public companies.

Data from the Labor Department showed US producer prices increased sharply in October, indicating that high inflation could persist for a while amid tight supply chains related to the pandemic.

Accelerating inflation and tighter monetary policy have become a bigger concern for investors than the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I think most investors realize right now that inflation is on the rise. It's not growing as quick as it was once feared, but it's still on the rise," said Robert Pavlik, senior portfolio manager at Dakota Wealth in Fairfield, Connecticut.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq closed at all-time highs on Monday for the eighth straight session, while the Dow clocked its second consecutive record closing high.

"I think what you're seeing is just a little bit of profit taking from yesterday. Interest rates are still really favorable, so it's not a bad environment to be in," Pavlik said.
