The major stock averages turned in a mixed performance on Wednesday. A strong rise on the Dow Jones Industrial Average was contrasted by a slight decline on the NASDAQ. The Dow was apparently helped by a lingering feeling of relief that certain proposed tariffs were not as drastic as they might have been. At the close, the Dow Jones Industrials rose 159 points; but the NASDAQ lost six points. Meantime, the S&P 500 edged a few points higher.
