Stocks grab another round of records as Wall Street parses trade newsStocks finished slightly higher on Monday, carving out record closes for all three major equity benchmarks, as investors tried to gauge the progress on a phase one trade deal between U.S. and China. The S&P 500 was up 2 points, or less than 0.1%, to finish at 3,122. The Dow Jones Industrial Average picked up 31 points, or 0.1%, to end around 28,036, based on preliminary numbers. The Nasdaq Composite rose 9 points, or 0.1%, to end near 8,550. Investors were tugged by news reports that both indicated progress and potential setbacks to U.S.-China trade talks. Over the weekend, top negotiators held "constructive" discussions, according to Chinese state media outlet Xinhua. But a later report by CNBC suggested that without rolling back existing tariffs the outlook for a resolution looked dim. The Trump administration also issued a 90-day extension of a license allowing U.S. companies to keep doing business with Chinese telecom giant Huawei Technologies Co. In company news, shares of HP Inc. fell after it rejected a takeover offer from Xerox Holdings Corp.
