Stocks notched more solid gains on Wall Street Thursday, driving the major indexes to record highs.
Technology companies accounted for a good portion of the rally, which came as U.S. markets reopened following the New Year’s Day holiday. Smaller-company stocks lagged the broader market’s gains. Bond yields fell.
The latest gains follow a blockbuster performance by the market in 2019.
The S&P 500 climbed 27.07 points, or 0.8%, to 3,257.85, a record.
