NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks edged lower on Wednesday as declines in technology more than offset a rally in the energy sector, but major indexes posted solid gains for the month on the back of a rally following the U.S. presidential election.
The Dow Jones industrial average <.DJI> rose 1.98 points, or 0.01 percent, to 19,123.58, the S&P 500 <.SPX> lost 5.85 points, or 0.27 percent, to 2,198.81 and the Nasdaq Composite <.IXIC> dropped 56.24 points, or 1.05 percent, to 5,323.68.
For the month, the Dow gained 5.4 percent, the S&P added 3.4 percent and the Nasdaq Composite rose 2.6 percent.
