Stocks record-setting levels

Stocks reached more record setting milestones last week, delivering the third consecutive record-high close for the S&P 500 and a new high for the Dow on Friday.

The Dow Jones industrial average closed at 16,947.08, a 25.62-point change and a record. For the week, it was up 1 percent.

The S&P 500 also hit a record, closing at 1,962.87. For the week, it was up 1.4 percent. Energy stocks were among the best performers. It was the S&P 500's 22nd record close this year.

The NASDAQ gained 8.71 points to close at 4,368.04. For the week, it was up 1.3 percent.

Despite the records, it was largely a static day for the indexes. The National Association of Realtors is expected to release existing home sales for May, and on Wednesday the Commerce Department will release numbers for first-quarter gross domestic product and May durable goods orders. Nike is expected to report quarterly results after Thursday’s close.
