NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stock indexes finished barely higher Tuesday after a late slump erased much of an early gain. Technology companies recovered some of the losses they took a day ago, but energy companies and banks slipped.
The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 0.18 points to 2,496.84.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 11.77 points, or almost 0.1 percent, to 22,284.32.
