Stocks Finish With Slight Gains
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- U.S. stocks closed with minuscule gains Wednesday after the Federal Reserve's Beige Book report found the U.S. economy grew "gradually" last month.
Sentiment also got a slight boost from an upward revision to second-quarter gross domestic product and positive housing data earlier in the day.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose more than 4 points, or 0.03%, to finish at 13,107.48, snapping a two-day losing streak.
