NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stock indexes are slightly higher Wednesday and technology companies are on track for their tenth gain in a row, thanks in part to a jump for video game companies. Household products companies are also rising, while a recent decline in interest rates continues to put pressure on banks.
KEEPING SCORE: The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 3 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,594 as of 3:20 p.m. Eastern time. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 5 points to 23,562. The Nasdaq composite rose 22 points, or 0.3 percent, to 6,790. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks picked up 3 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,482.
