Health care companies led US indexes slightly higher on Wall Street, and small-company stocks continued their record-setting run, the AP reports. AbbVie jumped 5% Thursday after saying it had reached a deal with a rival that would delay competition for its anti-inflammatory treatment Humira, the biggest-selling drug in the world. Technology and financial companies also rose. Applied Materials rose 3.6% and T. Rowe Price increased 2.3%. The Standard & Poor's 500 rose 3 points, or 0.1%, to 2,510. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 40 points, or 0.2%, to 22,381. The Nasdaq edged up a fraction of a point to 6,453. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks rose nearly 4 points, or 0.3%, to 1,488. The S&P 500 and the Russell 2000 closed at record highs. (Read more stock market stories.)
