U.S. stocks eked out a fresh round of record highs Tuesday, as better-than-expected third-quarter results from American corporations appeared to produce sufficient loft for a second record close for the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The Dow /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA -2.53% closed up less than 0.1% higher at around 35,755, with an intraday record high at 35,892.92; the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX -2.27% edged up 0.2% to about 4,575, following a jaunt near 4,600. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite index /zigman2/quotes/210598365/realtime COMP -2.23% finished up less than 0.1% at 15,235, putting the technology-laden index closer to eclipsing its Sept. 7 record close at 15,374.33. However, the day's gains might have been kept in check by persistent worries about inflation and fears of a global growth slowdown. On top of that the Federal Reserve meets next week, Nov. 2-3, to discuss implementing policies that would be viewed as less accommodative for stock buying.
