Stocks notched more solid gains on Wall Street Thursday, driving the major indexes to record highs.

Technology companies accounted for a good portion of the rally, which came as U.S. markets reopened following the New Year's Day holiday. Smaller-company stocks lagged the broader market’s gains. Bond yields fell.

The latest gains follow a blockbuster performance by the market in 2019.

The S&P 500 climbed 27.07 points, or 0.8%, to 3,257.85, a record.

The Nasdaq composite gained 119.58 points, or 1.3%, to 9,092.19, a record.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller company stocks slid 1.70 points, or 0.1%, to 1,666.77.
