Dow hits record high as infrastructure bill lifts cyclicals

The Dow hit a record high on Monday as the passage of a $1 trillion infrastructure bill lifted industrials, materials and other economy-focused sectors, while Tesla fell on top boss Elon Musk’s plan to sell about a tenth of his stake. Five of the 11 major S&P 500 sector indexes were higher after the Congress on Saturday passed the long-delayed infrastructure bill hailed by President Joe Biden as a “once in a generation” investment. “That infrastructure bill is going to put some energy into companies like 3M, Caterpillar and other companies that power the industrial sector, but we also think the materials sector is going to really benefit from that bill,” said Greg Bassuk, chief executive at AXS Investments in Port Chester, New York.
