S&P 500, Nasdaq reach record closing highs

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq closed at record highs on Monday, getting a boost from Amazon, Microsoft and other tech stocks.

But I think the market is looking past that and they're seeing so many good things and so many great companies that they just want to use it as a chance to invest in those great companies." About 70 percent of the S&P 500 companies that have reported fourth quarter earnings have beat Wall Street's expectations.
