Roku shares trade about 9% lower after soaring in their debut last week

U.S. stock benchmarks closed at all-time highs on Monday afternoon, as equities resumed a steady run-up that could set the tone for the final three months of 2017. Four main benchmarks set records: the S&P 500 index, the Dow, the Nasdaq and the small-cap Russell, shaking off a mass shooting in Las Vegas that President Donald Trump described as "an act of pure evil ."

What are the stock benchmarks doing?

The S&P 500 index advanced by 9.76 points, or 0.4%, finishing at a record 2,529.12, powered by gains in the health-care and financials sectors, up 1% and 0.9%, respectively. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 152.51 points, or 0.7%, to a fresh all-time peak at 22,557.60, supported by gains in 3M Co. (>> 3M) and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (>> Goldman Sachs Group).

The Nasdaq Composite Index , meanwhile, tacked on 20.76 points, or 0.3%, to 6,516.72. The Russell 2000 Index also carved out a record, up 1.3% at 1,509.47.

What are strategists and traders saying?

"l think what's driving the market is just optimism about the fourth quarter, along with expectations that results from the third quarter will be similar to the second quarter," said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Boston Private Wealth. He also said hope that the Trump administration will rework tax policy is supporting buying appetite, although doubts linger about that coming to fruition this year.

"The continued talk [about taxes] that's all that really matters, but I don't think that anything gets voted on and passed this year," he said.
