    The U.S. stock market began the day on a weak note, but managed to firm up and mount a solid advance in the afternoon, only to see some of these gains pared by the close. At the close of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average had risen 20 points; the broader S&P 500 Index had moved up five points; and the NASDAQ had tacked on 21 points. Notably, the technology-heavy index pressed into milestone territory today, surpassing its prior record closing high of about 5,050 which was set in March of 2000.

    Dogs Of The Dow March Quarter Roundup
    Mario Ferro  |  04/23/2015
    The Dow Jones Industrial Average has posted six unbroken years of advances, but the going has been decidedly less smooth in 2015. Meanwhile, the Dogs of the Dow are having a slightly tougher time making it seven for seven. March proved to be a challenging month for most equities, with only one of the Dogs making it into positive territory. Although several of the issues in this group are doing relatively well for the year-to-date, they still lag the other Industrials in the aggregate. While the markets remain choppy, the economic and monetary background continues to favor equities.

    Dow 30 Earnings: Caterpillar Inc. First Quarter 2015
    Dominic Silva  |  04/23/2015
    Shares of Dow-30 component Caterpillar are up in value after the heavy equipment manufacturer performed surprisingly well in the first quarter. Though sales of $12.70 billion fell roughly 4% over the year-earlier level, this eclipsed our $12.37 billion estimate. Higher prices on certain machines mitigated an unfavorable currency impact and lower sales volume.
