NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Stocks finished mixed Tuesday after investors cheered a second bailout package for Greece.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 15.82 points, or 0.12%, to 12,965.69. The blue-chip index rose as high as 13,004.97 in intraday action, cresting above 13,000 for the first time since May 2008 before the financial crisis hit later that year. The S&P 500 increased 0.98 points to 1,362.21 and the Nasdaq Composite fell 3.21 points to 2,948.57.

Breadth within the Dow was positive with 19 of the index's 30 components posting gains.

The biggest percentage gainers in the Dow were Alcoa (AA), Chevron (CVX) and Kraft (KFT).

Shares of Alcoa rose 2.56% to $10.41. The aluminum company announced Tuesday it completed a joint venture agreement with China Power Investment to create high-end fabricated aluminum products for the Chinese market.
