Thursday was a relatively quiet day for stocks. Most of the major indices were content to drift sideways in a narrow range. The U.S. dollar rallied for its third day in a row while bond yields traded lower.

Overall stocks were mixed on Thursday with healthcare, retail, semiconductors and biotech showing relative strength. Homebuilders were some of the worst performers.
