More good news from the manufacturing sector failed to generate much interest in equities Tuesday with stocks trading slightly lower within a very narrow intra-day range.

After hitting new records on Monday, the lack of any major market moving news coupled with concerns about valuations has encouraged a slightly more defensive mood along Wall Street. Most industry sectors in the S&P 500 were falling, including consumer stocks despite the bidding war between Tyson Foods ( TSN ) and Pilgrim's Pride ( PPC ) lifting Hillshire Brands ( HSH ) to another all-time high.
