Tesla falls after disappointing update on Model 3 production

U.S. stocks rose slightly on Tuesday, nudging major indexes to another round of all-time highs and setting the S&P 500 on course for its sixth up session in a row and yet another record close.

What stock benchmarks are doing

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 22 points, or 0.2%, to 22,580. The S&P 500 rose 2 points to 2,531, an increase of 0.1%. Both hit new intraday highs in early trading.

The Nasdaq Composite Index rose 6.8 points, or 0.1%, to 6,523. The tech-heavy index was a few points away from its own record.

The S&P has gained for five consecutive trading days, its longest winning streak since a six-session advance that ended Sept. 1. The Dow has moved higher in four straight sessions, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq has risen for five sessions in a row.

The Russell 2000 rose 2 points, or 0.1%, to 1,511. The index of small companies hit an all-time high of its own and is on track for its eighth straight daily gain.
