Stocks ended with meager gains on Wall Street Wednesday, stabilizing after a sell-off in tech stocks a day earlier.
It’s the latest turbulence for the market as traders brace for more earnings reports from major U.S. companies. The S&P 500 saw most of a midday rally evaporate and wound up with a slight gain. A tech recovery also petered out, leaving the Nasdaq just barely in the red.
Visa surged after reporting better-than-expected earnings. Boeing slumped after reporting a much bigger loss than Wall Street anticipated.
The S&P 500 rose 8.76 points, or 0.2%, to 4,183.96.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 61.75 points, or 0.2%, to 33,301.93.
The Nasdaq fell 1.81 points, or less than 0.1%, to 12,488.93.
The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies fell 6.44 points, or 0.3%, to 1,884.04.
