Spurred on by Chinese trade data, a new service from Walt Disney & Co. (NYSE: DIS), and positive quarterly earnings reports from two of America’s largest banks, JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) and Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE: WFC), investors bid the big North American stock indices to weekly gains, with the S&P 500 Composite Index edging towards its record high of 2,940.91, while gaining 0.5% on the week. The Nasdaq Composite Index also crept towards its 52-week high of 8,133.30, advancing 0.6% on the week. Toronto’s S&P/TSX Composite Index also made strides back towards its record high of 16,586.46 set last July, while also gaining 0.5% on the week as both financials and energy issues rallied.
