NEW YORK (AP) — The Standard and Poor's 500 closed at another five-year high Thursday after the stock market got a boost from reports suggesting the outlook for economic growth may be improving.
The S&P 500 rose 11.10 points to 1,472.12, its highest close since December 2007, right before the U.S. economy entered the Great Recession. It also closed at a five-year high on Friday and is now 93 points off its record close of 1,565.15, logged in October 2007.
