Stocks reverse early losses to end slightly higher

A late afternoon push helped stock indexes achieve modest gains, as another day of subdued trading received a big boost at the close from rebalancing of the Russell indices; thanks to the final surge, nearly 1.5B shares changed hands at the NYSE.

Tech, consumer discretionary, financials and industrials contributed most to the afternoon move to session highs.

For the week, the S&P 500 and Dow ended marginally lower after disappointing readings on Q1 economic growth and May consumer spending, while the Nasdaq outperformed the other leading indexes to record a second straight weekly gain.

Treasurys finished the session little changed, with the 10-year yield at 2.53%.
