Stocks mixed after Bank of America profit falls short

NEW YORK - Wall Street had a mixed performance Monday as investors regained a cautious stance after disappointing news from Bank of America Corp. and Midwest bank National City Corp., and after another record-breaking tear in oil prices.

Investors were clearly uneasy about extending last week's big gains after Bank of America said its first-quarter earnings fell 77 percent on write-downs and widening credit losses. BofA's report followed a week in which big-name companies in general turned in better-than-expected numbers for the first quarter, helping the major stock indexes to gains of more than 4 percent.

Wall Street has at times worried that a slowing economy and a potentially hesitant consumer would crimp profits in the first three months of the year. Shares of National City dropped after the Midwest bank said it got a $7 billion cash infusion from equity investors, lowered its dividend and posted a $171 million loss for the first quarter.
