Talk about a day with big news and little movement. It seems that has become the norm on Wall Street recently. Berkshire Hathaway's (NYSE: BRK-B) $28 billion deal to buy H.J. Heinz (NYSE: HNZ) has not much inspired investors to bid up stocks: As of 3:25 p.m. EST, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEX: ^DJI) is up a single point, while the S&P 500 (INDEX: ^GSPC) is up 0.15%.
