(Newser) – Dow Jones industrials closed at a record high for the 12th consecutive time, the AP reports. The Standard & Poor's 500 index, the benchmark favored by professional investors, also closed at a record high on Monday. The tiny gains came after an indecisive day for US stocks that sent indexes wavering between small gains and losses. Energy companies rose, but phone companies and utilities fell. National Oilwell Varco rose 3.3%. Verizon lost 1.4%. The Dow gained 15 points, less than 0.1%, to 20,837. The S&P 500 index gained 2 points, or 0.1%, to 2,367. The Nasdaq composite increased 16 points, or 0.3%, to 5,861.
