Nasdaq closes at new record high
(Close): Shares on Wall Street ended the day little changed, although the tech-heavy Nasdaq did edge up to another record high.
The S&P 500 just managed to scrape an increase, closing up 0.02% at 2.293.08.
Oil prices fell on Tuesday, pushed down by higher stockpiles in the US, and as a result energy company shares came under pressure.
Brent Crude dropped by 1.7% to $54.79 a barrel and West Texas Intermediate Crude fell by 2.2% to $51.86.
Shares in Chevron closed down by 1.41% and Exxon Mobil was 0.65% lower.
"If we are going into a quarter or two of lower energy prices... the story of improving earnings for the S&P 500, with the help of improving earnings in energy companies, may be suspect," said Bucky Hellwig, senior vice president at BB&T Wealth Management.
Shares in luxury handbag maker Michael Kors saw the biggest fall on the S&P, losing 10.8%.
Earlier the firm had reported disappointing third-quarter sales and cut its full-year revenue forecasts.
Also on the S&P, General Motors ended the day 4.7% lower after the carmaker posted a fall in net profits.
