Wall Street drifts higher; Treasury yields slow their rise
(AP) - Stocks closed mixed Wednesday on Wall Street after major indexes spent the day drifting up and down, not far off the record highs they reached last week.
The S&P 500 edged 0.2% higher thanks in large part to gains from several Big Tech companies including Apple and Amazon, even though most stocks in the index fell.
Small-company stocks edged lower after posting big gains in the first week of the year.
Treasury yields stalled following a rapid rise over the past few weeks.
The benchmark 10-year yield dipped as concerns calmed that the Federal Reserve may curtail its purchases of Treasurys.
