NEW YORK (AP) — The prospect of more economic stimulus from the Federal Reserve pushed the Standard & Poor’s 500 index to a fourth consecutive record close Tuesday. Investors also were encouraged by strong earnings from major U.S. companies. The U.S. economy added 148,000 jobs in September, the Labor Department reported Tuesday, lower than the 180,000 jobs forecast. The report was delayed for two and a half weeks because of the 16-day partial government shutdown.

Analysts are also expecting the upcoming jobs report for October to be weak because the shutdown may have dampened hiring.
