S&P 500 touches another record high
(04-03 10:25)

The S&P 500 Wednesday touched a new high, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell just short of a record on another good day for US stocks.
Positive sentiment lifted the S&P 500 by 5.38 (0.29 percent) to 1,890.90, the second record close in a row.
The Dow rose 40.39 (0.24 percent) to 16,573.00, about four points shy of a record. The tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 8.42 (0.20 percent) to 4,276.46.—AFP
