S&P 500 HITS RECORD HIGH, CHIP STOCKS EXTEND RALLY




On Thursday, Wall Street experienced a positive surge, with the Nasdaq leading the charge fueled by gains in chipmakers. The S&P 500 reached an intraday record high, reflecting investors' optimism regarding the potential interest rate cut by the Fed in June.
