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 71 points, or 0.3%, to 22,628. 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 3.2 points, or 0.1%, to 6,520. The tech-heavy index eked out a record of its own before retreating.

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 fell 5 points, or 0.3%, to 1,505. The index of small companies hit an all-time high of its own in early trading, but soon turned lower and is on track to snap a seven-day rally.
