Technology companies plunged Thursday, and high-dividend stocks also took hefty losses as bond yields rose to their highest price in more than a year. But more big gains for blue-chip banking and oil stocks pulled the Dow Jones industrial average to a record high.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 68.35 points, or 0.4 percent, to 19,191.93.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index lost 7.73 points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,191.08.
