Investors looked past anemic U.S. economic growth in the first quarter and sided with the Federal Reserve’s rosier outlook, pushing the Dow Jones Industrial Average to a record high close today.
The Dow gained 0.3 percent to close at 16,580.84 — which counts as a record for the close, although the index has tiptoed higher in intraday trading. Retail stocks also gained. The S&P 500 Retailing Industry Group advanced 0.1 percent to 858.45.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
