Gains from major companies such as Apple and Bank of America helped lift the S&P 500 Index to a new all-time high Wednesday. The S&P 500 Index gained 0.52 percent to close at 1,848.38, up roughly 25.0 percent in the past year, and slightly above its previous high of 1848.36. "The economy is improving, which means better corporate earnings. We have created more than 2 million jobs and at 10-year yield below 3%, markets can only go up. At current multiples, markets will go up even if the 10-year yields rise to 3.5%, because at a price-to-earnings ratio of 17.6, there is room for a bit more expansion," said John Fox, director of research at Fenimore Asset Management in Cobleskill, New York.
