US stocks blast past record highs as the post-election rally continues

0

The Dow Jones industrial average surged past the 19,000 milestone for the first time in its 120-year history on Tuesday.

As the post-election rally continues to propel U.S. stocks into record territory, the tech-heavy Nasdaq closed at a record 5386 and the S&P 500 above 2200 for the first time.

The Russell 2000 index, which measures smaller companies, traded higher for the 13th day in a row.

The fresh high marks the sixth time since the election that it has closed at a record.

But, not everyone was impressed by the 1,000 points the index managed to add.

And while discount retail chain stocks did really well, health care companies had it  rough.
