Major U.S. stock indexes finished Tuesday in record territory today. Stocks roared past their all-time record highs on Tuesday, powered by rising tech shares and robust quarterly earnings from retailers such as Walmart and Home Depot.
The S&P 500 index closed with a record high of 3,389 on Tuesday, erasing all losses since the coronavirus pandemic took hold. The Nasdaq Composite also closed with a new record high, topping 11,210. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed slightly down, at 27,778.
