Stocks close at record highs again as rally rolls on into new year

U.S. stocks closed higher again Friday, ending the week at new record highs, helped by more data suggesting the economy and corporate profits are in good health, following at least a partial resolution of the U.S. - China trade dispute and the passage of the U.S., Mexico, Canada trade deal by Congress.
