US stocks are posting their fifth straight gain, setting another record high for the Standard & Poor's 500 index, the AP reports. The slow but steady gains over the past several days were enough to erase most of the losses the market took in a sharp downturn last Wednesday. Technology companies, the best-performing sector this year, continued to put up big gains. Facebook added 1.3% and Google parent Alphabet rose 0.7%. TurboTax maker Intuit jumped 6.7% after beating analysts' forecasts for earnings, while Tiffany slumped 8.7% after its results fell short. The S&P 500 index increased 5 points, or 0.3%, to 2,404. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 74 points, or 0.4%, to 21,012. The Nasdaq composite gained 24 points, or 0.4%, to 6,163.
