(Newser) – Stocks are closing mostly higher on Wall Street, extending gains for the S&P 500 index into a second day, the AP reports. Technology and health care stocks did the most to pull the market higher Tuesday. Apple and UnitedHealth each rose 1.1%. Another big loss in Boeing pulled the Dow Jones Industrial Average lower for the second day running. Boeing lost 6.1% after many countries grounded the Boeing plane involved in the Ethiopian Airlines crash Sunday or banned it from their airspace. The S&P 500 index rose 8 points, or 0.3%, to 2,791. The Dow lost 96 points, or 0.4%, to 25,554. The Nasdaq rose 32 points, or 0.4%, to 7,591. (Read more stock market stories.)
