US stock indexes managed to end slightly higher on Wall Street as gains for retailers and energy companies outweighed declines in health care and technology companies, the AP reports. Target rose 2.8% Wednesday after issuing a bullish hiring forecast for the holiday season. Energy companies rose along with the price of oil. Chevron climbed 1.5%. Apple fell 0.8% a day after unveiling its new lineup of iPhones. The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 1 point, or 0.1%, to 2,498. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 39 points, or 0.2%, to 22,158. The Nasdaq composite edged up 5 points, or 0.1%, to 6,460. All three are at record highs. (More stock market stories.)
