Last time stocks had a run like this, the first Bush was U.S. president and Boris Yeltsin was his Russian counterpart.

Stocks have done something they haven’t done in more than a quarter of a century, with the Dow industrials, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq all closing at record levels for a fifth session in a row.

Stocks ended higher Wednesday as the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.52% closed up 107.45 points, or 0.5%, at a record 20,611.86; the S&P 500 index SPX, +0.50% finished up 11.67 points, or 0.5%, at a record 2,349.25; and the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, +0.64% gained 36.87 points, or 0.6%, to close at a record 5,819.44.
