NEW YORK - The closer investors get to the government's July employment report, the more cautious they are. Stocks slipped yesterday as investors shied away from big moves ahead of the government's monthly reading on job losses and the unemployment rate, which comes out before the start of trading tomorrow. The pullback, which took the Dow Jones industrials down 39 points, followed a 33-point gain Tuesday that was a slowdown from the previous day's triple-digit advance.
