Growing optimism about U.S. economy driving a record run on Wall Street


Growing optimism about prospects for the U.S. economy are driving a record run on Wall Street, with the S&P 500 Index starting the week at an all-time high


The diversified stock index that includes some of the best-known companies on the planet sits above five-thousand for the first time. It opens the week at five-thousand-26.
