How major US stock indexes fared Monday 5/15/2023

Wall Street drifted higher ahead of reports that will show how much a slowing economy is hurting what’s prevented a recession so far: solid spending by U.S. households.

The S&P 500 rose 0.3% Monday. The Dow edged higher, while the Nasdaq rose 0.7%.

Some of the sharper moves came from companies announcing takeovers of rivals, but the larger market remained listless as several worries hang over Wall Street. They include fears about a possible recession and a countdown to a possible default by the U.S. government. The latest discouraging report on manufacturing showed a plunge in New York state.

On Monday:
