Market recap: The Dow climbed to its 28th record close this year, but the S&P fell short of 1700 and ended lower as investors weighed upbeat earnings from DuPont and United Technologies against a weak regional factory report. The market looks to be reacting to earnings case-by-case, and investors are far more comfortable with stocks than alternatives. Crude oil rose ahead of supply data; gold fell slightly.
