Roku shares trade 11% lower after soaring in their debut last week

U.S. stock benchmarks on Monday traded in record territory as equities resumed a steady, albeit controlled, runup that could set the tone for the final three months of 2017. The moves for stocks occurred amid an upbeat tone on Wall Street despite a mass shooting event in Las Vegas that is being described as the worst in U.S. history.

What are the stock benchmarks doing?

S&P 500 index advanced by 6 points, or 0.2%, to 2,525, hitting a record intraday high at 2,527.92, powered by gains in the health-care sector, up 0.7%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 103 points, or 0.5%, at 22,505, touching an intraday, all-time high at 22,508.94, supported by gains in 3M Co. (>> 3M) and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (>> Goldman Sachs Group).

The Nasdaq Composite Index , meanwhile, tacked on 6 points, or 0.1%, to 6,501, paring earlier gains as a decline in shares of Apple Inc. (>> Apple), weighs on the index.

On Friday, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite finished at all-time closing highs , and the Dow finished only 7.50 points below its Sept. 20 record close. The three main benchmarks posted weekly, monthly and quarterly gains.

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.
