How Major Us Stock Indexes Fared Tuesday, 6/25/2024

A rebound for Nvidia propped up a weakened Wall Street and kept U.S. stock indexes close to their records.

The S&P 500 rose 0.4% Tuesday and neared its all-time high set a week earlier. The Nasdaq composite leaped 1.3% for its first gain in four days. Such strength came even as the majority of stocks on Wall Street outside artificial-intelligence winners fell. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which doesn’t include Nvidia among its members, was a laggard and slumped 0.8%.

Treasury yields were relatively steady after a report showed consumer confidence is a touch better than expected.
