(Reuters) – Tech stocks led Wall Street slightly higher on Wednesday, with investors largely shrugging off benign U.S. inflation data and unsurprising minutes from the Federal Reserve’s March meeting.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 6.58 points, or 0.03%, to 26,157.16, the S&P 500 gained 10.04 points, or 0.35%, to 2,888.24 and the Nasdaq Composite added 54.97 points, or 0.69%, to 7,964.24.
