Stocks Flatline at Record Highs

By
A A A

Stocks were largely flat into Wednesday's close as Wall Street took a breather after two record-setting days. The lack of market moving news encouraged razor-thin ranges for most of the major indices, although the Nasdaq briefly touched a new 14-year high after the open. Retail stocks got a boost from upbeat earnings from Tiffany's ( TIF ), Express ( EXPR ) and Michael's ( MIK ). Biotech stocks continued to strengthen as a result of M&A activity, while utilities advanced on the continued slide in Treasury yields.
