Stocks ended mixed on Wall Street, but a meager gain for the Dow Jones industrial average was enough to mark another record high, the AP reports. Sizable gains for Boeing and United Technologies pushed the Dow slightly higher Thursday, but other indexes ended mostly lower after a day of back-and-forth trading. Outside of gains for industrial and health care stocks, retailers and technology companies ended lower. Facebook lost 1.2% and Apple gave up 0.9%. Energy companies rose as the price of US crude oil rose to a six-week high. Cabot Oil & Gas rose 1.3%. The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 2 points, or 0.1%, to 2,495. The Dow rose 45 points, or 0.2%, to 22,203. The Nasdaq composite fell 31 points, or 0.5%, to 6,429. (More stock market stories.)
