The S&P 500 is closing at a record high for the first time since September, posting its second weekly gain in a row.

The index rose 1.4% Friday, bringing its for November to 9.6%.

Hopeful news this week on progress toward a coronavirus vaccine prompted investors to plow money into stocks, especially those of smaller companies, which stand to benefit greatly as the economy recovers.
