Stocks Continue Climb
(NEW YORK) -- Stocks rose and oil prices fell as the risk of a U.S. attack on Syria may be on hold. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 128 points at 15,191. The Nasdaq Composite added 23 points, 3,729. The S&P 500 gained 12 points to close at 1,683.
Oil prices fell about $2 a barrel to $107 on Tuesday. Big changes for the Dow. The index is dropping its three worst performing stocks -- Bank of America, Hewlett-Packard and Alcoa -- and replacing them with three new companies -- Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Visa Inc. and Nike Inc. All three newcomers advanced Tuesday. Apple stocks declined 2.4 percent Tuesday after unveiling its latest iPhones -- the 5S with a fingerprint scanner and faster processor, and the lower priced 5C, starting at $99.
