NEW YORK —

Stocks are opening slightly lower on Wall Street as the stock market comes off of four straight weeks of gains.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 21 points to 15,332 shortly after the opening bell Monday, a loss of 0.1 percent.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index was off a point at 1,665, or 0.1 percent.

The Nasdaq composite fell less than a point to 3,498, or less than 0.1 percent.

Investors will be looking to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's testimony to Congress, scheduled for Wednesday. The Federal Reserve's super-easy monetary policy has been a factor driving stock indexes to record highs this year.

Bed Bath & Beyond fell $1.20 to $67.92, or 2 percent, after a Jeffries analyst lowered his rating and price target for the company.
