Wall Street closed slightly higher on Thursday to send the S&P 500 to a seven-month high, as fresh data gave a rosier view of the economy and further gains for healthcare shares countered declines in energy and tech names.
The Dow Jones industrial average rose 47.87 points, or 0.27%, to 17,837.54, the S&P 500 gained 5.83 points, or 0.28%, to 2,105.16 and the Nasdaq Composite added 19.11 points, or 0.39%, to 4,971.36.
