    Dow, S&P 500, Nasdaq notch all-time highs after Fed minutes

    U.S. stock benchmarks closed at records on Wednesday after minutes from the Federal Reserve's policy-setting gathering in September indicated a desire to increase rates one additional time despite stubbornly low inflation. Some Fed policy members expressed concerns about inflation running below its 2% annual target, while others worried that waiting for inflation to normalize policy could lead to an overheated market. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose about 42.21 points, or 0.2%, at 22,872.89, supported by sharp climbs in the shares of components McDonald's Corp. and Johnson & Johnson . The S&P 500 index ended about 4.6 points, or 0.2%, at 2,555.24, with shares of retailing giants Target Corp. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. leading gains in the broad-market index. Meanwhile, the technology-laden Nasdaq Composite Index climbed 16.30 points, or 0.3%, to 6,603.55. All three benchmarks ended at records. The account of the Fed's discussions during its September meeting suggests that the central bank would likely raise rates at a gradual pace. In other corporate news, shares of BlackRock Inc. rose after posting better-than-expected earnings, with a spate of earnings from financials set to be released early Thursday.

    Dow buoyed by Wal-Mart but loses ground as P&G's stock falls on Peltz's proxy vote

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average retreated off session highs late Tuesday morning on reports that prominent investor Nelson Peltz of Trian Fund Management lost a closely watched proxy contest to put him on Procter & Gamble Co.'s board. Shares of Dow component P&G were off $1.27, or about 1.4%, cutting about 10 points from the Dow . The price-weighted blue-chip gauge, however, is being buoyed by rally in shares of retail giant Wal-Mart Stores Inc. , which was up, $3.59, or 4.5%, and contributing roughly 25 points to the benchmark's gain after the retailer said announced a $20 billion stock buyback program and detailed its profit and sales outlook. A $1 shift in any one of the Dow's 30 components equates to a 6.89-point swing. At P&G's annual, general meeting on Tuesday, Peltz failed to win a seat on the company's board, according to P&G. Peltz's Trian, however, sees the vote as too close to call. Most recently, the Dow was up 31 points, or 0.1%, at 22,791. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index was trading 2 points, or 0.1%, higher, at 2,547, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was flat at 6,576. All three equity benchmarks touched intraday records on Tuesday but have since pulled back from session highs.

The next biggest positive influence was Chevron Corp.'s stock , which was up $1.43, or 1.2%, to add 10 points to the Dow. The biggest drag on the blue-chip barometer was UnitedHealth Group Inc.'s stock , which fell $1.79, or 0.9%, to shave 12 points off the Dow.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Dow, S&P 500, Nasdaq jump to fresh intraday records as energy shares rallies

    U.S. stocks climbed on Tuesday at the open as the energy sector rallied and as the International Monetary Fund raised its outlook for global growth, reinforcing optimism about the health of the world economy that has helped drive equities to all-time highs. The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 78 points, or 0.4%, at 22,839, the S&P 500 index gained 10 points, or 0.4%, at 2,554, aided by a firm climb in the energy sector, measured by the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 27 points, or 0.4%, to 6,607. All three benchmarks notched intrady records in early Tuesday trade. The IMF said roughly 75% of the world's economy is sharing in the acceleration, a broader recovery than any in a decade. But it warned that a too-quick tapering from quantitative-easing measures by the European Central Bank and China failing to get a handle on its credit growth as factors that could derail economic progress. In corporate news, Procter & Gamble Co. shares gained as the consumer-products giant held an annual general meeting where a proxy vote among shareholders will decide on whether Trian Fund Management LP's chief executive officer, Nelson Peltz, gets a seat on the company's board. Meanwhile, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. shares were leading blue-chip gains, up 2.9%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Target's price cuts on 'thousands' of items sinks retailer stocks

"Part of that is removing the guesswork to ensure they feel confident they're getting a great, low price every day."
