NEW YORK – Stocks are trading in a narrow range after a fresh batch of reports showed that the economy continues to slowly regain strength.

Thursday's slightly positive reports on inflation, jobless claims and future economic growth are being tempered by new concerns about debt problems in Greece. That's keeping the major indexes narrowly mixed.

In midday trading, the Dow Jones Industrial average is up 10.13, or 0.1 percent, at 10,743.80. The Standard & Poor's 500 index is down 2.58, or 0.2 percent, at 1,163.63, while the Nasdaq composite index is down 0.45, or less than 0.1 percent, at 2,388.64.
