NEW YORK, Aug 22 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks opened slightly higher on Thursday after upbeat data from the world's top economies more than offset lingering uncertainty over the Federal Reserve's asset-buying stimulus.

The Dow Jones industrial average was up 1.92 points, or 0.01 percent, at 14,899.47. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index was up 3.64 points, or 0.22 percent, at 1,646.44. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 14.91 points, or 0.41 percent, at 3,614.70.
