    U.S. stock benchmarks ended in positive territory on Wednesday, booking solid monthly gains, but losing altitude after the Federal Reserve hinted that it is set to raise interest rates as early as its next meeting in March. As expected, the central bank held key rates at a range between 1.25% and 1.50%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished up 72.50 points, or 0.3%, at 26,149, boosted by a sharp earnings-fueled gain in component Boeing Co. . The S&P 500 index added a little over a point, or less than 0.1%, at 2,824, as the health-care sector put in the worst performance among the broad-market gauge's 11 sectors, down 1.4%, following Tuesday's announcement of a health-care consortium, including Amazon.com Inc. , J.P.
