Wall St hits new records, but telecom weighs on Dow

NEW YORK, Nov 24 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks rose on Monday,
with major indexes hitting fresh records on the back of multiple
merger deals and hopes that China will take further
accommodative monetary policy action.

Equities closed a fifth straight week of advances Friday,
boosted by accommodative actions from central banks in China and
Europe. That factor could continue boosting markets as sources
told Reuters that the Chinese leadership and central bank were
ready to cut interest rates again and loosen lending
restrictions. Such policy changes in the world’s second-biggest
economy could spur more market gains.
