Procter & Gamble gained 1% and Kimberly-Clark rose 1.3%. Health care stocks were among the biggest laggards. Medical supply company McKesson dropped 2.7%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 14 points, or 0.1%, to 26,949. The S&P 500 was unchanged at 2,991. The Nasdaq fell 5 points, or 0.1%, to 8,112.
