NEW YORK (AP) _ Stocks were little changed today after surrendering early gains that briefly repaired the remaining damage from Friday's 283-point tumble by the Dow industrials.

At 2 p.m. on Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 9.52 at 8,524.13 after giving back an early 85-point gain that would have wiped out Friday's 77-point loss.

Broader stock indicators turned mixed as investors, shaken by Friday's sudden decline, used the market's opening bounce to pull some money off the table.

Friday's downturn was sparked by fears that the economic crisis in Asia and Russia is spreading to Latin America. Complicating matters were worries about potential reprisals for last week's U.S. missile attacks on suspected terrorist sites in Afghanistan and Sudan.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index was up 2.26 at 1,083.50, and the technology-heavy Nasdaq composite index was down 6.81 at 1,790.80.

Declining issues outnumbered advancers by nearly a narrow margin on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume came to 376.92 million shares, down sharply from Friday's brisk pace.

The NYSE composite index was up 0.87 at 541.69, and the American Stock Exchange composite index was down 1.69 at 650.14.

Overseas, Tokyo's Nikkei stock average fell 2.0 percent, Frankfurt's DAX index rose 1.4 percent and London's FT-SE 100 rose 1.4 percent.
