Standard & Poor's 500 index trades above 1,900 for first time; Keurig Green Mountain soars
NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Standard & Poor's 500 index traded above 1,900 points for the first time but closed just shy of that milestone.
The closely watched U.S. stock market indicator traded as high as 1,902, but wound up closing at 1,897, up less than a point on the day. It's still an all-time high for the index.
The Dow Jones industrial average also reached another all-time high. The Dow gained 19 points, or 0.1 per cent, to 16,715 Tuesday.
The Nasdaq composite was the laggard on a mostly quiet day of trading. The technology-focused index fell 13 points, or 0.3 per cent, to 4,130.
Keurig Green Mountain surged 8 per cent after Coca-Cola raised its stake in the coffee company.
Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.61 per cent.
