Wall St up after midterm vote, ADP data; Dow hits record

NEW YORK, Nov 5 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks rose on Wednesday,
with the Dow advancing to a record high after the Republican
Party took control of the Senate in the midterm elections, as
expected, and following a stronger-than-anticipated report on
the labor market.

The beaten-down energy sector was among the strongest of the
day as a Republican majority could lead to new legislative
measures that impact the group. These include approval of oil
and gas pipelines and reforms for crude and natural gas export
laws.
