The stock market closed out May on a mostly higher note Friday, sending two out of the three major U.S. indexes to record highs.
Trading was uneven, and indexes moved between small gains and losses for most of the day. A late push higher left the Dow Jones industrial average and Standard & Poor’s 500 at all-time highs, but just barely.
The Dow Jones industrial average added 18.43 points, or 0.1 percent, to 16,717.17.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 3.54 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,923.57.
The Nasdaq composite index fell 5.33 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,242.62.
For the week:
The Dow is up 110.90 points, or 0.7 percent.
The S&P 500 index is up 23.04 points, or 1.2 percent.
The Nasdaq is up 66.03 points, or 1.4 percent
For the year:
The Dow is up 140.51 points, or 0.9 percent.
The S&P 500 index is up 75.21 points, or 4.1 percent.
The Nasdaq is up 66.03 points, or 1.6 percent.
