US Stocks Edge Higher

By  | 

NEW YORK U.S. stocks are inching higher, putting the Standard & Poor's 500 index on track for its third straight week of gains.

If the S&P 500 ends the week higher, it would be the longest stretch of weekly gains since an eight-week span from early October through November.

Priceline.com climbed 3.5 percent after the online travel company reported earnings that beat expectations.
