PG&E surged 24.9% after investigators ruled that the utility was not at fault for a Northern California wildfire that killed 22 people in 2017. Spice maker McCormick plunged 10.5% after reporting a weak quarter. The S&P 500 index rose 3 points, or 0.1%, to 2,642. The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 22 points, or 0.1%, to 24,553.
