Major US stock indexes ended a wobbly day with meager gains, enough to push them slightly further into record territory, the AP reports. Trading was indecisive for much of the day Monday, as losses for banks mostly offset gains in other sectors including technology and health care. Citigroup ended a touch lower despite reporting higher earnings. JPMorgan Chase, which reports earnings Tuesday, lost 1.2%. Among technology stocks, Broadcom climbed 1% after talks to acquire Symantec reportedly broke down. Symantec slumped 10.7%. The S&P 500 index rose less than 1 point to 3,014. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 27 points, or 0.1%, to 27,359. The Nasdaq added 14 points, or 0.2%, to 8,258. (More stock market stories.)
