How major US stock indexes fared Thursday

By The Associated Press

Stocks climbed on Wall Street Thursday for the third straight day as investors hope U.S. and Mexican officials can reach a deal that avoids tariffs on goods from Mexico.

One report said the U.S. could delay the tariffs, set for June 10, but there was no official word from Washington. Technology and energy stocks were among the biggest gainers.

On Thursday:

The S&P 500 index gained 17.34 points, or 0.6%, to 2,843.49.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 181.09 points, or 0.7%, to 25,720.66.

The Nasdaq composite added 40.08 points, or 0.5%, to 7,615.55.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies dropped 3.25 points, or 0.2%, to 1,503.54.

For the week:

The S&P 500 is up 91.43 points, or 3.3%.

The Dow is up 905.62 points, or 3.7%.

The Nasdaq is up 162.41 points, or 2.2%.

The Russell 2000 is up 38.05 points, or 2.6%.

For the year:

The S&P 500 is up 336.64 points, or 13.4%.

The Dow is up 2,393.20 points, or 10.3%.

The Nasdaq is up 980.28 points, or 14.8%.

The Russell 2000 is up 154.98 points, or 11.5%.
