Dow, S&P 500 rise to session highs after Fed rate decision
By Kate Gibson
U.S. stocks were mostly higher on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve held interest rates unchanged and Apple (AAPL) reported its first quarterly revenue decline since 2003.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average (I:DJI) rose 51 points, or 0.3 percent, to 18,042. The S&P 500 (SPX) was up nearly four points, or 0.2 percent, at 2,095. The Nasdaq Composite (I:COMP) shed 25 points, or 0.5 percent, to 4,863.
The disappointing earnings from the world's most valuable company intensified the bleak earnings atmosphere for technology companies.
