(AP) Stock indexes are edging higher in midday trading on Wall Street, keeping the Dow Jones industrial average above the 15,000 mark.


The Dow was up 11 points at 14,067 as of noon Eastern Daylight Time Wednesday, a gain of 0.1 percent. The index closed above 15,000 for the first time the day before.


The broader Standard & Poor's 500 index was up four points at 1,630, an increase of 0.3 percent. Both the Dow and S&P are trading at record levels.


The Nasdaq composite was up 12 points to 3,409, or 0.4 percent. The Nasdaq is nowhere near the peak of more than 5,000 points it reached during the dot-com bubble.


AOL plunged 9 percent to $37.64 after reporting earnings that fell far short of analysts' predictions.
