US stocks edged higher in early trade on Monday



US stocks edged higher in early trade on Monday, reversing course after a retreat on Friday.

 
Gains in telecoms and tech firms offset losses in energy shares, which were pulled lower by a fall in oil prices.


The Dow Jones climbed 42.5 points, or 0.2%, to 23,400.6, while the wider S&P 500 added just one point to 2,580.25. The Nasdaq rose 4.8 points to 6,787.7.


US indexes are hovering near all-time highs, after the resurgence of global growth has boosted corporate earnings.
