Stocks Push to Record Highs Monday     12/22 15:24

   U.S. stocks are back at record highs Monday as the market posts its fourth 
gain in a row.

   (AP) -- Stocks are back at record highs as the market posts its fourth gain 
in a row.

   The Dow Jones industrial average rose 154 points, or 0.9 percent, to 17,959 
Monday, narrowly beating the record high it set two weeks ago by about half a 
point.

   The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose seven points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,078. 
It was the 50th closing high for the S&P 500 this year.

   The Nasdaq rose sixteen points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,781.

   The market is coming off a big advance last week, which gave the S&P 500 its 
second-biggest weekly gain this year.

   Benchmark U.S. crude fell $1.26 to close at $55.26 a barrel in New York.

   Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.16 
percent.
