S.&P. 500 Index Closes at Highest Level Since June 2008
The Standard & Poor's 500-share index on Friday finished at its highest point since 2008, extending a climb that began in November.
But in a generally lackluster trading day, the Dow Jones industrial average ended the day flat, failing again to close above 13,000 points. The Nasdaq ended 0.2 percent higher.
The S.&.P. closed at about 1,365 points. The last time it was higher was in June 2008, before the worst of the financial crisis.
