U.S. stock prices were flat Friday morning after some positive economic news from the government. The U.S. Labor Department said employers added 290,000 workers to payrolls last month, many more than economists had expected. It's welcome news after Thursday's stunning plunge in the Dow Industrial Average. The unemployment rate, however, rose from the previous month, to 9.9 percent.
