Wall Street. Major U.S. stock-indexes little changed
Major U.S. stock-indexes rose on Wednesday, with the S&P inching closer to its record high, as oil prices increased again and chances of an interest rate hike in the near term faded. Oil held above $50 for the second consecutive day on supply disruptions in Nigeria, a drop in U.S. crude inventories and strong demand in China.
Most of all of Dow stocks in positive area (19 of 30). Top looser - Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ, -0,66%). Top gainer - Caterpillar Inc. (CAT, 2,07%).
Almost all of S&P sectors also in positive area. Top looser - Conglomerates (-0,3%). Top gainer - Basic Materials ( 1,2%).
